1. Thanks for sharing such special thoughts, Lanita. I’m so sorry for your loss, and I know Holly was blessed beyond measure by the support of your and your family.

  2. Oh Lanita, what a tender tribute to your friend Holly. You must have blessed her life as she blessed yours. May these lessons you learned inspire others. Praise God Holly is with Jesus.

    • Thanks, Barb. I truly believe God gave us a “Divine appointment.” From the beginning I felt led only to be her friend and all amounted to so much more than that.

    What a Providential ‘gift’ Holly must have been. Humbled in similar ways and needing desperately these life lessons. Two of my most inspiring friends are near death. Both have lived loving sacrificial lives in spite of bearing heavy burdens. Health and family seemingly robbed them of abundance. Assuredly thieves of their days, Primarily thieves of their righteous influence. I am indebted to your perspective and Holly’s friendship.
    Genuinely Blessed,
    Love the use of reverse & fast forward.

    • Thanks, Cindy. I appreciate your understanding of the situation. This child had many demons from an early age and fought them mightily when she became a believer. Helping with her baptism was truly one of the most joyous moments of my life. And thanks for sharing with others!

    What a special soul this young lady was and touched many in her own special way. Each of us have life experiences that are sometimes hard to share and relay to others. If we are attentive enough, the experiences of others can make a significant impression on our lives. Our responsibility is that of paying attention. God allowed you to be blessed and also be a blessing in a special way through Holly and the concerns and difficulties she had in life. Those experiences live on through our memories and hopefully we can be thankful for God’s instruction to help us be more attentive to others around us each day. That’s what Jesus did in His ministry – he was attentive to needs! What a blessing she was to so many. Thank you for your witness to her and allowing us to know her through you.
