Goodbye, Cindy by lbluejaye8

Goodbye, Cindy

Yesterday was one of the hardest days of my life as I said goodbye to a dear friend and the mother of one of my daughter's friends who lost her 14-year battle with breast cancer. I went to visit Cindy in the hospital this past summer, and I took her a goody bag filled with little things like puzzle books and cozy socks and candy. When I saw her that day, it took all my strength not collapse to the floor in a puddle of tears as she was not the Cindy I knew. I didn't though, but when I left that room, I somehow felt that she was going to get worse. I wanted to believe, so I continued to pray daily. God, however, finally released Cindy from that cancer-stricken body. I found this thank-you note yesterday that she had written me, and again, I am brought to my knees. Cindy never once complained about her illness, and even raised money for other cancer patients. I am in awe of her bravery, her selflessness, and her never-ending spirit. That spirit will always live on in my heart, and I am proud and humbled that I got to know her. I love you, Cindy. You are with the angels now and they are blessed.
I'm sorry for your loss. How wonderful that you kept this thank you note. I will pray for you and the others that will miss Cindy dearly. She sounds like an amazing person.

@staceylane She was. I just happened to run across this in a basket of papers and I felt like she was letting me know she is okay. She was incredible and I will miss her terribly. Thanks for your prayers.
