My view of her shifted from my friend’s wife to a woman I could have feelings for…. Scary in that I had no idea if anyone- including her- would be okay with me having those feelings.
In all honesty, I wasn’t even sure if I was okay with having these feelings.
Well, if you know Cady (or have followed her story), you know that she actually ended up doing the ministering to our family.
She got out of the car with a massive suitcase to give clothes to me, as a way to honor husband’s close friend.
I do not know how I could have walked through this season without knowing Jordan.
Cady and I get the chance to reminisce about this amazing man, and when Jordan is discussed at family gatherings I have the opportunity to not only appreciate the memories of him, but also contribute.
He wrestled through his second battle of cancer alongside his wife, Cady, for 9 months. Getting the phone call that Jordan was gone still seems surreal to me.
I finally understood the kind of fondness Jacob had for Rachel, who worked for his uncle for 14 years to have Rachel as his bride. We texted often and enjoyed a wonderful friendship with one another.

They encouraged me and actually affirmed that they had seen God’s hand in our interactions that weekend she was staying with us (thank the Lord for wise and good parents).
I then began communicating to my accountability partners and mentors from seminary about my processing and prayers about Cady.
