Hello All.This is Denetta, G's sister. I know that G planned to write a blog message to all of you before she went to see Heaven, but she never felt quite good enough to do it. So, I on her behalf...thinking I know pretty much what she would say...(though we all know I can not presume to speak for G) would like to write to you on her behalf. She is right here with me, so...here we go: (by the way, I know already that if I do not write this in G style, she'd pinch me hard, so...
Hey everyone...bet you thought this message was to tell you I'm a gonner! Nope, not quite yet, still breathing, though hardly. I must say that I am quite peaceful at the moment...could be meds, or death, or family, or HEY, I am going to be in heaven soon...unless God raises me from the dead. I do think that even if He does that, I'd still be in heaven for a second. I wonder if Lazerous was like, "Hey, I like it up here...what do you think you're doing sending me back???!!!" Anyways, I have been through a journey, as we all go through. Many of you have shared it with me. Praying for me, laughing with me, listening to me, looking at my pictures, reading my blogs, watching me thow up, shopping with me, taking me to the hospital etc... (I must say, I am so a size 6 or less right now). I always said that I would probably have to be skin and bones to be a size 6...I was right! Too cold to finally go buy that bikini now! Isn't that just the way it would go!
To my friends and family: I would like to say, without being cheesy that I love you. You are all special people and have meant very much in my life. I do love people, well most people, (I mean I love everyone because God said, just some are more...lets just say "different" than others)...Anyways, back to you...I am thankful for the wonderful time I have had with all of you. I would like to tell you that though I wish I had more time to be a friend, aunt, sister, daughter...I will still be all those things, just from a different place. Remember that life is a blink of an eye to God...I'm just going a bit ahead to see Him. Jealous? I will not be in pain, I will probably be skinny, and I will be able to sing with the angels, what a wonderful thing. I would ask that you all love Jesus with all of your heart until your dying day. God is good and faithful. Though we do not know why things happen the way they do, I trust him more than ever, and believe that He is in charge of this world. Continue to let Him be in charge of yours, for He is good, and loving, and peaceful, and a comforter, and a friend. I know I will be missed...I mean, really, if you think about it...who couldn't miss me! So go ahead and miss me, but don't grieve long for me. I am joyful. I know how soon we will meet, and I will be waiting with long slender skinny arms wide open (did I mention long and slender...and skinny?...to soon give you a hug and show you around the place I will soon be in. I mean think about it...I get to go meet God, face to face, is there any greater thing? Heaven is our real home, and I will see you soon! All of my love to you, and many many blessings in your time left here! I am very blessed to have known you, and will continue to love you.
See you soon in the big H!
(Heaven, not the other one!)
