I am devastated by this news. I would have never thought you could be taken so young with so many blessings yet to look after. I was so thankful when we were able to connect on MySpace years ago while you were living in Pennsylvania, and then to follow you and your family on Facebook as you moved to Florida and started you work for Jesus. I will always TREASURE the times we had together in our youth, and I look forward to catching up again when our Lord returns.
