Remembering Ashley

Tonight a young lady of great strength and incredible determination left this planet after a 10 year battle with a monster named "Leukemia." Ashley was a fighter, fierce and fearless. She recently defeated the beast for the third time in a decade. She received a bone marrow transplant less than two months ago. The transplant "took" and cancer lost. And yet tonight she lost a battle to "Graft Vs. Host Disease." With the defeat she stepped into the presence of her Lord, Jesus Christ. As I write this I fumble with the staggering thought that the eyes I last looked into just a few days ago, have now looked into the eyes of God.

Ashley was my friend. It was my honor to walk beside her and teach her about Jesus throughout her teenage years. I really cannot find words to honor her very well tonight. I'm still trying to understand that she is gone.

I hope you will take the time to read about Ashley HERE and HERE.  And it would be really great if you would pray for her family.

More to come...
