Tonight, December 13, 2009 around 5pm a wonderful Christian wife, mother, friend and woman went home to be with her Lord and Savior. Christine Sutton was a blessing and an inspiration to me in more ways than I can ever express.
She lived far beyond what the Dr.s ever said she would ever be able to. She was so very sick and yet she had the sweetest spirit and trusted God. She was willing to stay here or go home to Heaven. Whatever God wanted, however God could best use her, that is what she wanted.
I will never forget the last time to I saw her. Some of her friends and her daughters went to see her for her Birthday last month and we sang to her. Read verses from the Bible. Gave her cards, gifts and balloons. But my best memory is when I got ready to leave and bent over to hug her goodbye and she ran her frail hand thru my hair over and over, with tears in her eyes and told me she loved me and to always keep my joy and my smile. I will always treasure that small moment of time together. We knew we were telling each other goodbye as we looked in each other's eyes. It was at the same time the sweetest and the saddest goodbye I have ever had.
Goodbye my Dear Friend, My Sweet Christine, I shall see you in Heaven.
