An Empty Chair

The chair beside  me was empty today
    Tisha always sits by me on Sunday

The phone did not ring at about 7:30 this morning
      Tisha likes to check in almost every morning and often in the evening
      She has Darrell’s number on speed dial,  she calls him “partner”
       For quite a while they worked together at the food bank , as a team of two

In my tote bag is a blue pen I picked up in Maui
    Tisha has a huge collection of pens and often shares one of hers with me
     She has hand written two cookbooks for us.. she prints very neatly

Sunday evening we often get a call with bowling scores
      Tisha  is on a  team
      Now her friend Megan can drive them to the league  games
       Tisha loves lots of games and the family plays together every night

Friendship can be described in many different ways, though always with love
     Tisha  has been described as loving unconditionally.   She always closes her
       phone calls with ,” I love you”.   

There is far more to Tisha than these few lines can express
      Maybe that is why God called her home
       Tisha is with Jesus now. 

Last week  we talked, while Darrell was busy in the kitchen.
   She said  "goodbye,I love you”             
   I said  “ I love you too, honey”.

We will always miss our Tisha

You are blessed to have such a friend secure in the blessed hope we will see her again after a little while.
