Grief has been running rivers through my heart these past few days.
You left us early and with little warning.
Half a world away and more than ten years since I have seen you.
Yet, the weight of your impression on my life remains.
Your exuberance for life, your passionate love for your Savior,
And your gentle care for those around you nudge me in those directions.
You continue to make me want to live my life full of love and purpose.
