Earth lost a saint and heaven gained one this past Wednesday. My dear friend Carol crossed the Finish Line on Wednesday after a 26-year battle with MS. Her memorial service is this afternoon. I was going to say "my heart is heavy today" but truthfully it isn't. Oh, I am certainly sad for those of us left behind, but the weight of her suffering is now gone. As her daughter told me yesterday at the viewing, it's like the burden that everyone has been carrying, has been lifted.
The last time Carol spoke was on Sunday. She said, "I'm ready for heaven."
