This is Adam posting.
At 3:25 pm today, September 2nd Allie finished her race here with us. She came to the hospice care center late last night in need of platelets to help with some mouth bleeding. Soon she was complaining of trouble breathing and was largely sedated since then. The bleeding persisted and the breathing slowly gave out. She was surrounded by family and I got to walk my bride down the aisle to meet her Savior. To say I loved her seems a woeful understatement. She was incredible, beautiful, and godly. Once we knew it was happening I told Paige and she bravely came for a visit. To watch my little 8 year old tackle the emotions and fear of seeing mommy that way reminded me of my wife’s strength. She was sad when I told her and then began asking all about the logistics of heaven, my answers seemed to comfort her. Perhaps this is something of what Jesus meant about having faith like a child.
I will post the memorial service details here soon.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. (Psalm 116:15 ESV)
