Recently, a friend passed away after a long battle with esophageal cancer. He was a man who lived life to the fullest right up to the end. He wrote a weekly blog about his experience of having a terminal illness which helped his readers see that death could be approached calmly and with a sense of hope. He also grew in his relationship with Christ in the months leading up to his death. He was baptised and confirmed and I was honoured to be his sponsor into the church.
