Karla’s In Heaven
And God will wipe away each tear from their eyes;
there shall be no more death ,nor sorrow, nor crying .
There shall be no more pain, for the former thing have
passed away.” Rev 21:4
Heaven is a sweeter place this week. Karla went to live there this past Sunday. She fought Cancer for about three and a half years.
She will be missed. She went to one of our charge conferences a few years ago with the stack of get well cards she had received from people at church. She was in remission at that time. As I heard the story, she spoke before those gathered and told the how much it meant to her to know that she and her husband were not alone in her battle with Cancer.
When our former church merged with another one, Karla was the head of the trustees who oversaw the task of moving. When she was in remission, she still felt able to work in that capacity.
She took a positive attitude about having Cancer. Even when she started having issues with her legs, she told us she would beat the disease.
Before she became ill this last time, she helped out when the church had a funeral dinner. She always had a pretty smile. Recently, when some of us from church went to visit and pray, she still had her warm beautiful grin.
As much as we will miss her, we know she is with God and that she received the best healing, God’s divine healing.
