Condolences

Condolence From: SY
Condolence: My condolences to the Hughes family. Many wonder, why do bad things happen to good people. It was never God's purpose for us to get sick,grow old,and did.We can look forward to God's promise, to take away the pain, sickness and death, by means of his Kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray about. (Isaiah 33:24 ;Matthews 6:9,10)

Condolence: I enjoyed working with Dawn when she was here with us.
We visited a couple of years ago, and she was so happy that all was going well for her.

May the Lord be with her family now and give them strength and comfort in the days ahead.

Condolence: My Friend Dawn Hughes-

I wanted to honor Dawn and our friendship but I at first I wasn’t sure how. My head and heart are swirling upon learning that she’s gone. I already miss her something awful. I know that God will give me the grace and strength I need to put one foot in front of the other and I will learn how to live with this void in my life, though it seems so impossible right now. She used to tell me that I had a way with words, that I wrote well, a gift she would say. And while I am certain that my mother, an English professor, might have something to say about that, I am going to attempt to string a few words together about my friend and the bond we share.
We met 20 years ago as we were both beginning exciting new chapters in our life as sales reps at Rasa Floors. Our friendship was birthed out of geographic convenience really. We lived close to one another, so we carpooled together to the never ending string of work functions. While I loathed every minute of those obligations, she never seemed to mind. In fact, I think she relished those occasions. She would come to life in social settings where I was painfully uncomfortable. She could strike up that playful antagonistic banter of hers with a complete stranger as if she had known them her whole life. Both to my horror and my comfort, this behavior of hers would continue throughout the decades of our friendship. Upon reflection, I believe she could tell that I was ill at ease when she acted like that and therefore I believe she enjoyed it all the more! She got a kick out of making me uncomfortable! As memories of those mostly awkward but sometimes down right embarrassing interactions cross the landscape of my mind, I will smile, laugh and no doubt shed a tear, as that very behavior that made me so uncomfortable in the early years grew to be one of the things I loved most about her.
Our friendship was a bit unlikely as we were more different than we were alike. We were polar opposites in our professional life. We did not have the same style or values when it came to work. I like to dot every “I” and cross every “t”—Dawn wasn’t fond of the “I” or the “t”! Another major difference in the two of us was that she was a single mom fighting every day to provide the best life for her son Hunter. And me, I was married with dogs  She was carefree….me a bit rigid and uptight! She smoked and drank diet coke; I was obsessed with nutrition and exercise. It was a bit uncanny I suppose. Our friendship was also different than that of most “special girlfriend relationships” in that we would go long periods of time without seeing or talking to one another, and yet somehow we were there for each other at some pivotal moments in each other’s lives. Moments, that as I reflect upon today, I’m only beginning to recognize the impact they had on my life.
Dawn and I had our similarities too. We were both known for being just a bit outspoken. “No Filter” some would say. And our personalities…, well, we could get a bit in your face. Maybe not our best quality for all occasions, but one in which we spoke the same language. Sometimes that translated into some very heated exchanges, sharp words and hurt feelings. We got over it though. After a proper amount of time of being bullheaded and stubborn had passed, we’d pick up right where we left off, pressing on as if nothing had happen.
Our friendship that span two decades saw many peaks and valleys. This past year, 2017, saw both highs and lows. As it turned out, it was one of those pivotal moments in life with one another. We each had our struggles. We listened to each other day and night offering words of encouragement, love and support. And if I’m being honest, sometimes some unwelcomed brutal honesty that packed a punch! Not every time, but most of the time, we acted on the advice we had given one another and crawled out of the valley slowly but surely. In one of those conversations Dawn and I talked about our faith and our walk with Christ. I had been there with Dawn in her 30’s when she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior, and I know from our recent conversations that her faith was strong and her walk with Christ was closer than perhaps it had ever been. I take comfort in knowing beyond any shadow of a doubt that she is with Our Lord and Savior today and she suffers no more.
I will never really understand how the likes of Dawn and I came to be so close. But close we were. And these few words I have strung together will never do justice to how I feel about her. Words are so inadequate when trying to articulate feelings. It’s ironic really, that “my words” that she said were my gift, end up being my final gift to her.

I will miss you dearly Dawn. I am grateful for the friendship, the smiles, the laughs, and yes -even the brutal honesty you punched me with so frequently!

Rest in peace my friend; at least until I get there (inside joke) I will see you on the other side 


Kelli
