Loss

My dear friend June passed peacefully yesterday, she had been battling cancer for around a year and finally fell into a deep sleep yesterday afternoon.  I am relieved for her, the suffering is over, but for her family and friends there is a now a void where she used to be.  I found it very difficult to deal with her illness, it came on so suddenly and before we knew it she was really ill.  I feel really sad for everyone she has left behind but my faith helps me to understand that she is suffering no more.  She is resting, without pain, worry or stress.  God will remember her just as all those who loved her.  I don't want to remember my friend as a victim of disease, she was a strong, creative, generous, fun, beautiful person a one of a kind.  I will always remember her with love and deep affection.
