this week a friend of mine from high school passed away. she was 28. it was unexpected. it was the day after christmas. it was not the desired answer to thousands of prayers that hundreds of people prayed. it was, is, and will continue to be devastating for everyone that knew her.
today a father will bury his daughter. today a mother will bury her baby girl. today there will not be one empty seat or one dry eye in a church in minneapolis. today i am sending all of my love to minnesota. today i am hugging every friend i see.
maggie, you were the sweetest of the sweets. you left a beautiful and unparalleled mark on this world. i am praying for you and your family as you spend your first days in heaven and they walk through their first days without you by their side. may you have a million arms to welcome you home and may we find peace knowing that you are indeed... home.
