Poetic compassion! John has captured the dark journey of losing his wife in a story that needs to be told. For all who have lost hope, he reminds us that God's grace is sufficient for us. Even the beauty of God's world reminds us that we are not to give up in the face of adversity. We all remember Maxine as a person of great grace and dignity, a lady among ladies. John's journal of her experience of Cancer is a tribute to her faith and a legacy of their love. I recommend these words to all who suffer from illness and anticipate loss. His honest account of their pain will encourage all of us who go through pain to trust as they did in the Lord Jesus Christ.
