One of the girls I went to college with at Stetson has passed away.
We had some classes together, she lives in my dorm the first couple of years, she was good friends with a guy I was dating at the time - so we hung out and became friends.
A couple of years ago, she was diagnosed with mouth cancer...went through chemo, treatment, etc. She was in remission. Recently, they found that it had went to her kidneys and lungs. Just two days ago, they medically induced her into coma...guess they had no other options. This morning, she passed away.
This girl was beautiful - inside AND out. Seriously so gorgeous...I always looked at her for a little bit of fashion tips...she had it all. She loved life and lived it so well.
I'm having a really tough time comprehending it. She was only 24. 24! She has so many friends it's amazing - and a beautiful family that supported her in all decisions. Her + her boyfriend were so in love. She knew how to have fun + she always did.
Why was she taken away from all of those who loved her AND she loved?? It just doesn't make sense.
I know that that is where faith + God comes in. But it's something I struggle with. For me, it's hard to accept. Yes, maybe many will come to Jesus because of this tragedy...but why can't they do it in another manner when this beautiful girl enjoys her life.
It's certainly a reminder to live life to the fullest, love all + tell them, have no fears there may not be a tomorrow, etc.
Love you all oodles!
