The Late, Great Delle Chatman PDF Print E-mail

If you need a boost or even if you don't - watch a few of these wonderful reflections here by Delle Chatman who died last November of ovarian cancer. Talk about a lay apostle!

As I wrote about her at the time:

I first heard about her from Barb Nicolosi who wrote about her death from ovarian cancer earlier this month.

But then I found this videos that she had made in the last couple of years for a Chicago station - what an incredible witness to the love of God and the hope of the faith! If only I had 1/10 of her faith and evident love! Occasionally, it can sound a bit like she thinks she's earning salvation - but I don't think that's it at all. I just think she is so consumed with the experience of the love of God that she sees all of life through that paradigm.

Watch a couple. They are magnificent. Delle wanted to be a priest, apparently, and only resigned herself to not becoming one a couple years ago and refused to become bitter. Or about having ovarian cancer and leaving a young daughter (she was a single mother)

The last e-mail she sent out as she entered hospice ended with this sentence:

"PS. Brothers and sisters, either we believe in eternal life - or we don't."

Watching her again just now say "I didn't keep the faith. Faith kept me." moved me to tears all over again. In the presence of such a glowing, radiant witness, how could you not be drawn to the love of Christ?

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew.
