As Cheyanne always says, value your family and loved ones. Give them the most valuable gift of all: yourself, your time, and your love. "Live-Laugh-Love"
by Bonnie Anders
Cheyanne is just "lost". The pain is not only emotional, but physical. We all pray for God's healing peace in her heart and mind. She was with Eric every day for the past 8 years since they met, and cared for him thru the physical and medical issues day in and day out since his battle with cancer began again almost five years ago. This is especially difficult for her now that the reality of his being gone has set in. Lift her daily in your prayers for the comfort and peace that she so badly needs at this time.
As a mother myself, please also lift Gail (and Ken) in your prayers. Regardless of age, this was their "baby". My heart aches at the very thought of losing your child.
May God Bless each and every one of you for your prayers, thoughts, and help during this stressful and sad time.
Take time to hug your children, no matter how naughty they might have been today, or that they didn't do something just as you wanted it done. Husbands, thank your wives in special ways of doing and showing that you care for them and appreciate them in your life. And lastly, wives, show and tell your husband that you love him above all other people in your lives.
"God is love, and he who abides in
love abides in God, and God abides in him" (1 Jn 4:16).
LIVE - LAUGH - LOVE
"The LORD giveth, and the LORD taketh!" Our Heavenly father had given us Eric for a period of time that was truly a gift...and in Eric's battle with the "C" disease, God had taken Eric HOME to be with him...free of disease, free of pain and suffering, to relish in his Eternal home in Heaven.
Some of our days will be so sad without our loved one, but we can rejoice in the fact that he is in a place far more beautiful than anything our minds could ever imagine, and at the feet of Jesus he is HEALED and WHOLE again and beaming in a perfect love.
At the conclusion of Eric's graveside service, as we walked back to the waiting family cars, in the sky (and I mean to say a sky that had not even sprinkled rain) were two lovely rainbows. How fitting, especially in view of the fact that one of the background songs to Eric's slide show of photos was "SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW"!! A sign of reassurance, love and promises of the world to come.
Thank ALL of you who have given from your heart. You have been such a blessing to Eric and Cheyanne in their journey, and now Peace to Cheyanne to assist in the costs involved in burial, etc. May God Bless and Keep You!
Love and Hugs,
Bonnie Anders (Cheyanne's Mom)
Blessings to all of you who have lifted them in prayer these years, and PLEASE continue to lift Cheyanne in this new chapter of her life.
Love to all!
To all of you who have given, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! You cannot believe the stress that this will ease for Cheyanne as she and Eric face this new chapter in their young lives.
