Just a few weeks ago, our church and the local community were shocked to learn of a young woman’s tragic death. She was very involved in her school, the community and our church. We only knew her indirectly, but the shock of losing a woman on the cusp of adulthood hit everyone very hard. The memorial service was a mix of sadness at her passing, but also, joy and laughter about how she was and what she did on a consistent basis to encourage others.
