Our dear friend Rory went home to be with her Heavenly Father today. She found out on Christmas Eve that she had a very aggressive cancer in her bones. No one knew how much longer she would be with us. My girls had just spent the afternoon doing crafts with her on Wednesday, and now she's gone. She will leave a huge hole in all the lives of those who knew her. Once you met Rory you would never forget her. She came into our church almost 3 years ago as a bitter, disabled, confused and lonely woman. She left us with a strong faith, a joyful heart and a persevering spirit. God totally transformed her and healed all her broken relationships. It was amazing to see the transformation take place...glory to God! We helped throw a birthday party for her just over a month ago. I knew she wouldn't be with us long and thought it best to celebrate her life while she was here to enjoy it with us. It was a wonderful memory all of us share. My whole family grieves the loss of Rory, but we rejoice with the angels that she is totally healed and looking forward to greeting us there.
