Rest in Peace

So much has happened this week that I am still trying to grasp the concept of what all went on. What had the makings of a good week turned into one of sorrow.

Monday we woke up and had only been up a short time when Chris got a phone call telling him his 20-year old cousin Lester had died. We were out the door in seconds and over there in minutes. The family was already gathering shell shocked because Lesters' mom had passed away two months prior. I walked in with one of Chris' aunts. Seeing him laying there I do believe will be something I will remember for awhile.

That was like Chris' brother. They had grown up close and this family believes family is the most important thing. Chris almost took a seizure while we was there and an ambulance ended up getting called. Everything checked out though and he refused to go to the hospital. For the rest of the day we road around with some friends so he wouldn't be idle.

Tuesday past in the haze of Monday.

Wednesday I got my hair cut short. I will post some pictures later hopefully. Then Lester's visitation. My heart breaks for Liz to be a widow at such a young age and to loose the man she loved. I couldn't imagine. When you saw those to you knew it was that real love that only happens once in a lifetime. She is such a sweet girl and it seems so unfair that she would have to suffer like this.

Today as we speak I am waiting to see Dr. K. I don't think she is ready for me today. So much has happened in the 3 weeks since I seen her some for the good and some for the bad. But I am pushing on.

Lester's funeral is at 1pm. That will be absolution for Chris and Liz and I wish I could heal their hurt because anyone hates to see loved ones in pain. But it's not possible. Please keep this family in your prayers.

Rest in Peace
Lester Noble
