Grieving and Rejoicing - UPDATED

UPDATE from Milton Dykes:

Thanks to some very creative volunteers in our church we plan to offer a live feed from Kristy's Homegoing Celebration Service Thursday, July 24 at 1:30 PM Eastern time. This can be viewed via the internet at the following address:

The service will be recorded and can watched at later time for those who cannot watch it live.God bless you!

Pixels, you may remember me posting about Kristy Dykes in the past several months - a beautiful, precious woman, writer, wife, mom, grandmother and faithful woman of God who was diagnosed with a brain tumor November 7th.

She passed away Monday evening, so our hearts are both grieving and rejoicing. Rather than explain, I'd like to just point you to her Christian Love Stories blog, where her husband Milton has posted about her homegoing. Please read it. It will touch your heart.

Kristy will be missed, but her faith and her faith in action will live on. May God surround her family with His loving comfort and care during this time.

Have been a long time reader of the blog and my life has been blessed through their journey.

I love that you call it a "homegoing celebration" instead of a viewing or memorial service. That just says it all, doesn't it!?!!!!
