Because of her terminal illness, she saw the world in a way that others simply couldn’t. Although young in age, she was wise in insight. Her illness taught her not to fear death, but rather to come to peace with the next phase of her journey.
Rosey News shared this touching story about a terminal young woman with an interesting final wish.
Read her story below.
There was a young woman who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given three months to live.
Therefore, as she was getting her things “in order,” she contacted her Pastor and had him come to her house to discuss certain aspects of her final wishes.
She told him which songs she wanted sung at the service, what scriptures she would like read, and what outfit she wanted to be buried in.
Everything was in order and the Pastor was preparing to leave when the young woman suddenly remembered something very important to her.
“There’s one more thing,” she said excitedly.
” What’s that?” the Pastor’s reply.
“This is very important,” the young woman continued. “I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand.”
The Pastor stood looking at the young woman, not knowing quite what to say.
That surprises you, doesn’t it?” the young woman asked.
“Well, to be honest, I’m puzzled by the request,” said the Pastor.
