My deepest sympathy to the family for the loss of your loved one, and may you be comforted by the future promises from Almighty God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18), to mankind, to undo the cause of death and everything that causes us pain, suffering and sorrow, please read it from His written word, the Bible at Job 14:14,15, John 5:28,29, Isaiah 25:8, Isaiah 33:24.

So sorry to hear of your loss. At times like this, words can be hard to find. I lost my mom and dad to various cancers. Reading the bible helped me tremendously. The scriptures that brought me the greatest comfort was Revelation 21:4,5 and John 5:28, 29. I hope Jesus' promise of a resurrection for our dear loved ones will give you a ray of hope and comfort. Your family will be in my prayers.

Brenda Ann Dixon... I can never thank you enough. Our life together was amazing!
It started with you LOVING Dave Dixon. You followed God's voice when He said you two needed a child. When traditional family formation did not occur, you opened your mind and heart for a different plan. You collected and sowed seed. After nearly a year, the baby was growing in me. In order to get that baby her safely, YOU and Dave had to take care of me, physically. THAT had not been part of the plan. But, you did it anyway. And when that little girl got here at 28 weeks needing so much care... it was you who daily repeated that she was "going to be fine". What a faith! The trust! The peace that you had.
We had so much fun, shopping for her, dressing her up, teaching her to make silly faces and do silly dances. We decided a sibling would be great. You were tickled when we found out it was a boy - your ideal: 1 girl, 1 boy.
Dave and You and I did work to put the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of our kids above anything else. Not always easy, not always hard, But thats what we had agreed to and by God's grace, mercy, love and blessing, IT WORKED.
Dana Ann and Ben both treasure their relationship with each of us. They are both amazing kiddos to know. They each have passions that you guided and helped them to explore and develop. I am eternally grateful for you giving the world God's gift of love thru the lives of Dana Ann and Benjamin Tilman Lee!
I love you for who YOU are and were and will be. At last, you are feeling no pain, and you are a truly renewed being. Hug mamaw, my daddy, Aunt Dot and Teresa. Love on your Daddy, of course. See for the first time that little man James (and the many other individuals that have diagnoses associated with the different way their brain worked) who you cared for - know them with their expressive full soul! Meet and greet the people we didn't get to actually get to know here on earth. So much to do, so many to see. With no time limits... Thanks to your Saviour Jesus whom you will get to experience in unfathomable new ways.
From above, check on & watch over DA and Ben boy like only a momma angel can do. I will make sure that they remember your loving spirit, your curiosity about life and the things of this world you found most interesting as they move thru milestones here on earth.
A heavenly reunion with you is such a comforting thought for me.
I miss you already. I love you forever.
