my precious Ba

September 16, 2020

It is with a broken heart (for us) that I share that my precious Ba joyfully entered into the presence of her first & ultimate love & King on Saturday. We rejoice greatly with her in her homecoming but are mourning the loss of this precious one who has loved so deeply & fully.

At one point during my health journey I had just found out that one of the most well known medical hospitals in the world felt my case was to complicated & that there was no hope. My dear grandmother, one of my best friends, my "Ba" came into my room in the early hours of the morning the next day & sat on my bed & spent time praying with me and over me for hours. As she finished she got up & said, "Rebecca, I don't care how bleak it looks or the fact that they say there is no hope...God is a God of miracles & has not abandoned you." I wept & held on to her words for the hours, days, weeks, months, & years ahead....

As we have been in the process of saying a long goodbye to Ba in the past weeks & days,
I have reflected on lot of things that made her the woman that she was. This memory remains one of my most treasured memories...the wisdom of a woman who had walked with God for decades & a faith that is unwavering in the midst of circumstances that would go to the contrary....

My family & I are so incredibly grateful for your out pouring of love and kindness in the past days & for your prayers & support, specifically in the last 72 hours. We are grateful for so many amazing medical teams, the care & love of people at Meadowbrook, & the kind understanding of my school as I had to leave suddenly & quickly on Thursday morning.

We covet your prayers the days, weeks, & years ahead for our family as we are left here with a huge hole in our hearts. Thank you so much to each of you for all of the compassion you have poured out on us. We are so incredibly grateful for your love & prayers.
