The beautiful soul written about in yesterday's post, as well as here and here - left her tired and weak earthly body this afternoon shortly after 4pm.

In the final weeks of her life many visitors came and sang with her and spent time at her side. Multiple people were touched by her life and the joyful spirit with which she battled disease. While AIDS ultimately stole her health from her, it did not steal her faith or her spunk. She did not die alone or unloved and she now is Home where her suffering is no more.

Please pray for her sister (18) and her mother and their family.

I’ve been feeling kind of restless 
I’ve been feeling out of place 
I can hear a distant singing 
A song that I can’t write 
And it echoes of what I’m always trying to say 

There’s a feeling I can’t capture 
It’s always just a prayer away 
I want to know the ending 
Things hoped for but not seen 
But I guess that’s the point of hoping anyway 

I’m confined by my senses 
To really know what you are like 
You are more than I can fathom 
And more than I can guess 
And more than I can see with human sight 

But I have felt you with my spirit 
I have felt you fill this room 
And this is just an invitation 
Just a sample of the whole 
And I cannot wait to be going home 

Going home, I’ll meet you at the table 
Going home, I’ll meet you in the air 
And you are never too young to think about it 
Oh, I cannot wait to be going, to be going home 

Face to face, how can it be 
Face to face, how can it be 
Face to face, how can it be
