I would just like to ask for prayers for me and my best friends family.


The VERY BEST friend I have EVER had went to be with the Lord today.

I think I am still somewhat in shock.

She had fought 2 battles with cancer and gone through a bone marrow transplant.

She was doing well and was in remission but came down with pneumonia and had been in the hospital for several weeks.. We though she was getting better, her penu cleared but then I guess she got some type of fungal or bacteria infection...They had her on heavy duty abx and said she just had a really bad sinus infection????hum

I REALLY DID NOT think she wouldnt get better and come home.

We spoke EVERYDAY at least several times a day.

Anyway, she took a turn for the worse last night and passed away this morning aaround 10 am.


She was truly the best friend and was there for me ALWAYS...even when she was stuggling with her cancer.

SHE is the reason I did not give up and pursued finding out what I had wrong with me (Lyme) when all the Dr's and test said they could find nothing.

She told me to follow my instinst and trust in the Lord to help me...AND He did.


She was a true Christian and I know for a fact I WOULD NOT have the faith I do if it had not been for her.

She was in her 40's I know she is with the Lord but my heart just breaks so much.

I'm sorry to post this but I kinda feel like ya'll are my family and she is really the only close friend I had.

I'm just gonna miss her soooo much.


Her name was Sharon....


Please take the time to say an extra I LOVE YOU to your family or friend (:


God bless all,

Karen

I'm so sorry, Karen. [Frown]

I can't even imagine how you are feeling right now. I was just saying to my best friend that I don't know what I'd ever do without her.

Rest well, Sharon.

And big *hugs* to you Karen.

Karen, thank you for sharing with your Lymenet "family" about your precious friend, Sharon.

What an inspiration she must have been to everyone around her.

Aww, your best friend--sorry for your great loss.

God has promised to be close to the broken hearted, may He show Himself faithful!

I'm praying.

Karen, I'm so sorry for your lose. That "c" word just makes me cringe. I've lost three close family members. Cancer makes me angry.

I feel like they haven't accomplished much for 50 yrs with treatment. They tear a person down and then try to build them back up again. There's got to be a better way.

Hospitals are suppose to be a scary place to be these days. So much super bacteria floating around in this enviroment. Yet, the establishment laugh at what we know to be the truth about super bacteria.

My visit emotion with death like this is anger. We've got to get better.

Take care of you and yours.

I am so sorry Karen.

The same rules should apply in death. Get copies of records.

I do know people die-but many times it is from lack of care and knowledge.

While we mourn we should also look to make sure they were doing everything they should have. Yeast, fungus, bacteria, virus. There are things that could be prevented and sometimes are missed.

Prayers for comfort.

Thank you all for the kind words. Today was very hard but I made it through. Church was very hard but is is Palm Sunday (:

I spent the afternoon with her family and we got to go and view the body. At first I wasn't sure if I should go but then I did and was glad..she looked so peaceful. (:

Funny you should mention that pinelady as I am pretty sure she picked up a bacteria, fungus, type viral while in the hospital...she had gone in with pneu. but that was completely cleared. So not sure what really happended but at least I know she is now with the Lord.

Again, thank you all for the wishes..Bless you...It certainly does help.

I hope and pray ALL have a wonderful and blessed Easter week (:

Karen

Karen, you were really blessed to have a friend like Sharon.

Most people go through their entire life and don't ever have such a friend.

I lost my brother at age 18. I had raised him, so it was really hard for me.

His death was unexpected, like Sharon's. So, give yourself time. You could feel sick for a good while. It is wonderful that you know with certainty where she is. But, you want her here right now, I know how it is.

Think of her rising up into heaven when you go to church next week, Easter Sunday.

Sharon is enjoying herself. We, left here, are the lesser for her leaving us.

Karen,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my best friend two months ago, and know how devastating it is. Please take comfort that she is no longer in pain. Let your friends and family take care of you during these very hard days and weeks to come. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Karen, So sorry to hear you have lost such an important person in your life. I believe there is no higher compliment or honor you could pay Sharon than to say that she inspired your faith and perseverance.

Thank you ALL for the thoughts and prayers. There will be a memorial service for Sharon on Saturday..the weather is suppose to be beautiful (: and I was thinking what better timing for her memorial than between Good Friday and Easter Morning....I know Heaven will certainly have one more special person celebrating from above.

God Bless all,
Karen (:

Karen,

I am so sorry for the loss of your best friend, Sharon.

I pray that you and her family will find the strength you need to make it through the coming days.

She has entered the Kingdom of Heaven and will forever live in glory with our Savior, Jesus Christ.

My deepest sympathy to you.
