On the morning of May 20, I learned from a friend that one of my best friends from school had been in a car accident on a country highway, just the previous afternoon. The car lost control and rolled. Four of the occupants (including my friend) escaped with their lives. Tragically, however, my friend’s daughter—not quite five years old—passed away at the scene. Her birthday was to be a few days later.
The little girl’s memorial service and celebration of life was today. Unfortunately, I was unable to go, but she and her family have been on my mind constantly.
Rest in peace, dear little Kalani. When you wake up on resurrection day, your friend Jesus will be there. All of heaven’s flowers await.
