Kristy Dykes, not so much a romance writer, but an author of Christian love stories, has gone to be with the Lord after a long battle with brain cancer.
A former newspaper woman, Kristy is the author of ten award winning Christian fiction titles. She had been active in both ACFW and the Faith, Hope and Love chapter of RWA for many years.
Kristy had a tumor that was quite similar to the one Senator Kennedy is dealing with. In her blog, Christian Love Stories, Kristy kept the faith as she bravely chronicled her fight with this terrible disease. Her husband Milton, daughters Julie and Jennifer and grandchildren took over the blog when she became to ill to put up articles. The address of her blog is: http://www.christianlovestories.blogspot.com/
Although I never met Kristy, I’ve been aware of her blog for the last year and have visited it and appreciated her deep faith and bright outlook on life as well as her family’s love and loyalty. My prayers go out to them and also to all her fans.
