Sharing my good days and bad days

Tribute to my friend…




I met Carolyn Lewis and her husband Fred at a Shoney’s Restaurant in Knoxville in 2009… I was dating Fred’s cousin Dan at the time and we all met — unexpectedly — when Fred and Carolyn passed through Knoxville on their travels…

I know they did volunteer work, helping to build churches, but they also took time to enjoy South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and many other states while traveling in their big motorhome.

Carolyn and I became friends, and we corresponded about many things — family, life, church, grandchildren, books, blogs, surgeries!

She has been such a huge source of encouragement to me — I hope she received as much from our friendship as I did.

After a surgery last September, she shared with me that they had found cancer. I won’t go into any other details, except to say that God called her home yesterday, January 29, 2014.


I’m going to miss her SO MUCH. But I know that I’ll see her again — a grand reunion in the sky.

Until then, I ask for your prayers…

God bless you!
