  • 17 yr old dies in my home town

    I just received a call to inform me that a young lady in one of my area high schools died yesterday during track practice.

    While the cause is unknown at this time it really does not matter to family, they are in pain and could use all the support they can get (even if it is from strangers on the internet).

    Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. When I know more I will post it.

    God Bless his newest angel.

    My prayers are with this family and the newest angel in heaven. May God's peace wash over this family and their friends during this most difficult time. My heart goes out to each of her parents as they try to walk through their cloud of grief. This young lady has found her eternal home and for that she is blessed. God Bless each one left behind.

    Losing a child is the most difficult journey for any person. Each time we lose another young life no matter the circumstances we are reminded how fragile life remains. I look to God for comfort, healing and forgiveness as I continue to walk my own journey. Our time on this planet is very short, I strive to make the most of each moment with my loved ones this Thanksgiving. My hope is that others will do the same. May gratitude ring through as we enjoy each others presence and bring to the table the memory of those gone before us.

    Blessings to my HCMA Family,
    Love and Light,
