i would like to write this now before I forget. I still don’t know when Linda’s funeral will be, but I’m sure her husband will ring me when he knows.
I’m so pleased I’ve started to write my blog as it’s going to be my way of remembering things. Things and events I’m going to need to remember for my future writing. I’ve been pretty good so far being able to recal events and memories but as I get older I’m sure to forget things and a lot of those things are really interesting and useful for everyone, so this will be my way of recording for my future books.
About three months ago Linda told me that while she had been away in America on holiday five years ago, she had a problem with her heart and she needed to go into hospital for an operation. While she was under the anaesthetic she said she saw her son and he told her she could stay with him if she would like to or, she could go back and be with her husband (his father). She said she told him she would like a little bit longer with his father, so she came back. That was five years ago.
Since Linda was diagnosed with cancer four years ago she was able to visit America three times for holidays and Australia twice for six weeks each time. She was never in any pain and up until just before last Christmas she was playing badminton at least once a week. The tumours in her liver disappeared, the tumours on her lungs shrank but then they found tumours on her spine, and signs of it in her brain.
Now these are just my thoughts.
I feel as if God has been very kind to Linda. She could have suffered terribly during the last few weeks and months of her life the way the cancer was spreading, but she didn’t and she hasn’t. Walking in her high heeled clogs on Friday, stroke on Saturday night and taken gently in her sleep seven days later, thank you Lord for being kind to her and yes, I’ve got tears in my eyes as I write this. But now I’m not going to forget her story. To be honest I don’t think I would have, I’ll definitely not now.
I know you would not have been alone when you passed over Linda, your precious boy would have been there for you.
So for now, Love and blessings to you both.
