Fly Away Home: A Dedication
Fly Away Home was inspired by and is dedicated to the memory of "Sissy", the sister of my dear friend Becky of Bees In Her Bonnet. Sissy was wheelchair bound for the majority of her adult life due to MS. In spite of her limitations, Sissy was known to her family as having a deep faith in Jesus and a "can do" attitude. Wife and mother to 2 young adult children, Sissy didn't let her wheelchair hold her back in life. Becky says that Sissy would often tell others that when she got to heaven she would be able to run.
This weekend Sissys life was cut short by cancer. In her final days she told her family that she knew she wouldn't just run in heaven, she would fly.
Fly away home, Sissy. You will be missed by your family and friends.
