One thing I envy about Tricia is that she has that one true best friend that you always hear and read about in movies and good books. She and Gabby have been the best of friends since the moment they met in an airport on their way to a summer camp back in high school. Gabby was just here in Durham for few days (Friday - Sunday), spending most of her time in the hospital with Tricia and Gwyneth.
On Saturday evening, Gabby got the call that her grandmother in FL was at the hospital and may only have 24 hours to live. Later that night, she received another call that her grandmother had passed away. Gabby and her family will be flying down to FL over the next few days to be with her grandfather and celebrate and mourn the life and death of her grandmother.
I know that this woman meant much to Gabby...she even wore her wedding dress (circa 1930's) at her own wedding a few years ago. Please, join me in prayer over the next few days, especially, for the Herndon family. Gabby is like family, and I know Tricia would appreciate it incredibly.
