Last week we included a post in our blog to give you all a space to include there your best wishes for our member tonkaalan who stopped receiving the chemo treatment she was going through on the previous week. Today I must inform you that this morning she passed away.

I know this may sound like bad news for most of you, since you appreciated her very much; but you must keep in mind that now she is in heaven enjoying all the delights promised to us human beings…

May her body rest in peace and her spirit live forever!

“The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God. ”

We’ll miss you Tonk….

Today I have cried not for Becky who is safe in the hands of the great comforter but because I am selfish and wanted her to be with us a little longer. It is never easy to relinquish what you love and I loved my Tonkaa. I find comfort in these words that I take from God’s word and wanted to share them with her family and the other roomies.

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Rest in Paradise Becky my friend.

My dear Becky,
You will be missed in the Bingo Hall. I have missed you more than you know as you have struggled with this Horrible disease. I am glad your family surrounded you and held you as you passed from their arms into the arms of God. I know you are now at peace–a peace you have not known for a while now. May you today shout a loud BINGO at that Bingo game in the sky! We will feel your thrill!!
God Bless you and your family. May they find comfort in the many memories they have stored up.

May God’s love guide you during this time of sorrow, and may you find solace in His care. The ones we love are never gone, they live within our hearts. “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort.” II Cors. 1:3

A verse for Tonka

Weep not for Tonka now she is dead
for wasted are the tears we shed
Her eyes are dimmed she cannot see
we grieve for her…Remember Tonka as loving and giving and in our hearts she will keep on living.

God bless you my dear friend.

My Dear Friend Becky,
I will miss you. You gave me strength when you needed it yourself.I will miss our talks on the phone.My thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends. Everyone at Bingohall will miss you.I have a little comforting verse for your friends and family: “God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter, without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way”. I will miss you my friend.

My sweet dear friend Tonka….I have said prayers for you every since you found out about your cancer and I will always include you in my prayers. You are a wonderful friend and just as wonderful a mother and grandmother. I will miss you but you will always be in my heart. You are one of the good ones and up in heaven with no more pain.

Tonk, I will miss seeing you in the chats. It was always great fun having you in the room. I know that now you are at peace and reaping the benefits of a great and good life.

This is my fourth visit to the blog, just didn’t know what to say about Tonk, how do I put everything I’m feeling into words. She was always the first person I looked for in chat, I really miss her. As I drove home from work tonite I saw an unusually bright star and smiled to myself and realized that she is still brightening my life. I hope Tonk’s family knows that she was the grandest lady at the bingo hall. My thoughts and prayers are for her family now. baztec

Just like baztec, I have been to this blog many times, not knowing what to say. Ashlynn said it best for me… she said but mommy she is with God now in Heaven, and thats a good place to be. To Tonkas family my heartfelt condolences go out to you through this difficult time.
