Last week, I shared the story about Lisa Tapley, and her battle with cancer. One of Lisa's friends with the James Bess Foundation was able to arrange for Reba McEntire to call her from L.A. They talked about the weather, her upcoming show at The Ford Center - And then, she prayed with them. Sadly, her husband, Melvin, shared this post on Facebook:

Today at 12:51am I said goodbye for now to my wife,best friend, mother and step mother to my children, and mamma to the grandchildren. I said goodbye for now to the one special person who kept me grounded, focused, and moving forward. I said goodbye for now to the one special lady whom was my rock. For over 20 years she has been my angel, and will continue to be my angel forever more. For now fly high precious and I will meet you on the other side
