For Claudette

I am heartbroken.  

Although I did not know her as well as some, she was always kind and helpful to me.  She was a member of DWB long before I arrived, but was never too busy to chat or remark on a post.

When things like this happen, the death of such a great person, I can't help but be thankful to God...  Thankful and blessed that this woman, Claudette, was a part of my life; if only in a small way.

My faith and trust in God is strengthened because I know Claudette was formed by His holy hands, and her wonderful heart given life by His breath. 

She was a gift to us all, placed in this world to touch the lives and hearts of so many.  To be a friend and advocate to the DWB community and a woman of courage and strength.  

Death is inevitable but it is never without pain and suffering for those left behind.  As a Christian, my prayers go out to the family who must now continue without Claudette.  Also, to the friends who knew her and loved her as a sister.  

Psalm 23:4  (KJV)

 4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

We were all very sad to hear of the passing of Claudette. She was very dear to us too. We admire her greatly for the strong fight she put up against the evil "C".

This is a beautiful post for Claudette. I didn't get to chat with her as much on FB as when she was able to blog and I missed that. It's a sad time for her family and friends!
