Something for comfort

Even though we know people who are suffering with a life-threatening illness, it smacks like a medicine ball being thrown at mach speed to the abdomen with our hands down by our sides, when the call comes that that person has passed away. Another sympathy basket to make. Another self-titled Josh CD to purchase for the basket. Normally I like to bake something, but this gift will be traveling across the country and in this heat, I have to resort to plan "B." I think a cooling eye pack will be a nice substitue for the homemade cookies or chocolate-covered strawberries that I usually include in the basket. A couple types of tea to have on hand for those who drop in will be included, as well as a note of sympathy. I know when my grandmother, whom I loved dearly, passed away, it was the wonderful notes from friends that provided the much needed comfort.
