Our newspaper, The Kansas City Star, published this sad obit today:
I thought I would be okay about the closing since I knew it was coming but when I read about the dismantling of the symbols of the church, my heart just broke.
We did not attend the final service because I knew that my attitude was not in the right place. I wanted to be spiteful to those people who had finished this grand old lady off and certainly not in a Christian way. I didn't want to act like they had, at least in public.
I hope to keep the happy days Hubby and I spend there in my heart and thoughts but right now I just feel lost and very, very sad.
