A sweet angel graces the heavens today....and we miss her....

My dear sister-in-law Janine (who is at the right in the picture with Madeline taken a few years ago, and Marc and myself) passed away today.....I know she is in God's hands and he is looking at her beautiful eyes and his love is shining on her face.  It was only 1 year ago that she became ill.

I thank everyone who prayed for her.  She was able to live throughout a beautiful summer in British Columbia.  A summer that is never this warm and sunny.  She was a very natural and inspirational and strong lady. 

She could no longer take more treatment but her tumours had quieted and she was able to live longer than the 1-4 months expected and appeared to be getting better even though that could not be possible.  She was hospitalized since this weekend and at 12:15 today she was at peace....

Janine was my brother Ken's best friend and he will miss her terribly.  I hope you'll take a moment to think of him and that he will stay strong at this difficult time.... Judi xoxo

Hi Judi,

Death is so sad, but the thought of Janine in Heaven is a help, I'm sure. said...

Good morning Judi, I cam over to say hello. I don't remember that adorable cat on your header. Maybe I just missed it. How cute she is.

I hope Janine's family are doing well. I know you are a very busy person. You are in my thoughts this lovely Fall morning.
