Most of you may already know, but we lost one of our J-landers last night. At 9:50 p.m., Lahoma (LAHOMA'S LAMENTS) left this world and went home. Lahoma has been a close friend of my wife's and I just wanted to post a few words in this journal.'
Lahoma understood the meaning of being a true friend. When my wife, before we met, was going through some of the worst times of her life that no one should have to face, Lahoma was there. There were times when Nelishia (PRAYING AND BELIEVING) had no family or friends to call on, and folks, I really mean NO ONE. That's a place that few people have ever been. Many think they have, but really haven't. Nelishia had Lahoma. Lahoma wasn't one to disappear when someone was going through hard times as many so-called friends do these days. Lahoma was such an inspiration and comfort to Nelishia. Physical distance separated them, but they are bonded like sisters. For those of you who understand, Lahoma is a sister.
I believe Lahoma was given this time so she could make things right with God. We were told that she had made peace with Him, and that is the most wonderful news! A group from our church went and minstered to her recently. It was by proxy because Lahoma was asleep and Robert didn't want to wake her. But he allowed our church group to minister to her through him and he went back to the house and followed their directions. I think Lahoma was granted this time so that could happen. I will be eternally grateful that she had that opportunity. The three of us will be together in just a little while, but Lahoma will be missed here.
