Saying Good-bye to a Friend

Saying good-bye to a friend is never easy to do. Sometimes it’s harder than others. This friend has been trapped inside her body for nine years. She had Alzheimers, so to her family and close friends, saying good-bye was a blessing too, especially given her faith and theirs.

Good-bye friend

Jean was a very funny, talented, witty, wise and gifted woman. I have known her for most of my life. She became a friend to me when I reached adulthood. We shared a love of shoes, Jean and I,  and admired each others sharp wits, better known as sarcasm at times. I will always remember the good times we shared.

Her daughter-in-law is a very dear friend of mine and she is also a talented writer and fellow blogger. She wrote a tribute as a blog post a while back and I would like to share it here.

The post is entitle Jean’s Journey.  Jan began the post with this:

My mother-in-law, Jean, is an amazing person. In her lifetime,  she has earned academic  excellence. She has raised five boys. She has kept the books for my father-in-law, Sam, who was a dentist. Jean has fed forty to fifty people at a time in her home, serving delicious  meals, being a great hostess, without even batting an eyelash. She has been an incredibly gifted pianist and has used her skills in several churches. She has accompanied my husband and me when we sang for weddings and other occasions. Jean has led Bible studies throughout her life, and she has been a great student of the Bible. Jean has shown me an example for having faith in all situations.

  1. Thanks for your thoughts on Jean and the respects you paid last weekend. Knowing each of your personalities, I can understand that you would be close. I forgot you had a thing for shoes, too!
