Dana Westfall lost her battle with breast cancer Wednesday night around 10 PM. I chatted with another old HS friend on Monday or Tuesday night. Dana had an apparently aggressive form of breast cancer. She underwent chemo from August to January 2009, surgery in January 2009, to no avail, although it gave her precious time with her family. She and Wes were HS sweethearts, married 27 years, but together since they were HS freshmen, so that would make it around 32 years or so.
Please continue to include Wes, Travis and Michelle in your prayers. This verse is on our youngest son's headstone, and I continually go back to it when I lose someone.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (King James Version)
16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Thanks for your continued prayers.
