One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, and the other the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

      This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you the most you would leave me.” 

The Lord replied, “ My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During those times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was that I carried you.”

Posted by on February 5, 2017

Sue McMillen (neé Susan Elizabeth O’Brien) passed away peacefully in her home on February 3, 2017, in her 73rd year. After a long illness borne with boundless grace and courage, Sue goes to her rest with all the love of her family and the many friends whose lives have been warmed by her gentle kindness. She leaves behind her husband of nearly fifty years, Larry McMillen, children Jen McMillen (Josephine) and David McMillen (Cynthia), brother Jamie O’Brien, sister Shari Selves (Floyd) and their daughter Lauren, and five grandchildren who won’t stand still long enough for us to get all their names. Sue and Larry travelled the world, living in Pattaya, Thailand (where Dave was born); exotic Sarnia; Montreal (where Jen was born); Vancouver; Toronto; and Port Dickson, Malaysia, before settling on Stoney Lake in a home they literally built together (with the help of family and friends). She loved and was loved by the local community, joining the Hamilton Bay Bridge Club and becoming a member of the Warsaw Women’s Institute. Sue was a tireless supporter of others: whether volunteering for years at Jessie’s Place (a Centre for teenage moms), starting a women’s support group for local and ex-patriate women in Malaysia, being a fixture in the staff rooms of her children’s schools, or raising funds for the M.S. Society, she always did more for others than she did for herself. The world is a kinder, more compassionate place for her having been in it. She is predeceased by her parents Laurence O’Brien and Mildred Irene O’Brien (neé Scott). A celebration of Sue’s life will be held at the family home from 1pm to 4pm on February 11, 2017. Memorial donations may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada (Peterborough Chapter).
