I feel very blessed to have known and loved Anna. I visited and prayed with her almost every week and she attended my Wednesday afternoon Bible Study at Valley Haven, whenever she was well enough to do so.
My last visit with Anna were last Wednesday. Though very weak and declining, she did open her eyes when I spoke her name. I reassured her of her certainty of eternal life in heaven and urged her to let go when Jesus called her Home. Later that afternoon, I visited her again and I and Julia, her roommate who dearly loved Anna, prayed at her bedside. Though she did not open her eyes, I recited the 23d Psalm and John 14:1-4, hoping to provide comfort for both Anna and Julia. May the Lord be with and give us comfort as we all grieve her no longer being with us - and may our dear memories of Anna sustain us until we all are reunited with Anna in heaven, where there is no more aging, sickness, sorrow or parting.
In Christ's love, Chaplain Ron Rice
