my friend Sarah

This morning my friend Sarah passed away.

She was 23 years old.

No more pain. No more sickness.

I'm happy for her, in heaven, dancing on legs that wouldn't dance here.

Telling jokes with her mischievous grin.

But sad for all the rest of us, here, missing her.

Praying for God to give comfort and peace to her family - including her niece, the Princess - today.

And thanking Him for crossing my path with hers.

Patti: I love the picture of Sarah dancing, running, chatting with who knows.. Moses, Abraham, Jacob, Rebekah... Jesus... Yep very very sad for Sarah's family.

... Can't stop thinking about her. What a shining example she was and is of beauty and courage and faith. She had an impact on total strangers with her light even in the face of impossible adversity. My heart and prayers go out to her family and friends.
