Last week, a young girl in our community died of cardiac arrest. She was just 14 years old. It has really affected our community. She had a brief illness and suddenly died. This family is very loved in our community-very involved in sports, school, etc. The parents have grown up here as well. I didn't know the girl personally. I have seen her and I am aquainted with her mom, since her kids went to the same school as mine. I attended her memorial service yesterday, to support the family. It was so touching and beautiful. It made me wish I had known the girl. This memorial was attended by hundreds of people. Our community has worked together so well to take care of this girl's family-it has made me so proud to be a part of such a wonderful , caring community.
In the program for the memorial service included this quote that she said. I loved it, and wanted to pay tribute to her by including it in my art today.
