Today, one of my friends was buried.
I am often asked if I miss living in the United States and usually the answer is no.........but at times like this, it is difficult.
It is a reminder of how short, fragile and unpredictable life is. Sarah was only 45 years old and died in a tragic accident. It is a horrific circumstance that leaves her husband, Rick and her children to deal with. Many questions are left unanswered.
Sarah told me on many occasions that she wanted to continue her studies and become a nurse. This would allow her to participate in more Medical Missions. She had a heart of gold!
She and Rick visited Guatemala in 2010, with my parents. We had an ice cream celebration with all of our ABC Children. This is Rick and Sarah with Paulina.
Sarah's death leaves me speechless and in shock, as it does everyone. But knowing that she is a Christian, a baptized believer, gives me the assurance that we will spend eternity together. Sarah loved the Lord and she would want you to know that.
This is the last photo that I have of us............taken in January before I returned to Guatemala.
