A Tragic Ending

I have been putting off writing this entry...

I prayed that I would be able to report to you all of a happy conclusion to the search for a lost friend.  Sadly, that entry will never come.

Janelle was and will always be, an angel in our midst.  She gave so much of herself to others, and will always be remembered as a generous spirit, willing to go the extra mile for anyone in need of absolutely anything.  Especially anyone in need of a friend, a shoulder or an attentive ear.  She was dear to many and will be missed by all who knew her.

Thank you, for all of your prayers, wishes and concerns.  It is all still very overwhelming as to how and why this happened, but what is more important is keeping her memory alive and I smile at all the memories I have of this warm, fun loving friend. 

Hold tightly to those you love.  Live each day as if tomorrow will never come.  We all take life for granted sometimes, that is only human nature.  Let's just try to remember how precious life is and appreciate all that we are blessed with, even as we long for more from it. 

Rest in loving peace, Janelle.

I am sorry for the loss.  You will have your happy memories, and these need to be protected so they don't dissapear some day.  Treasure the time you shared.

I'm very sorry for your loss, she sounds like an amazing person.  Do you mind me asking what happened to her???? Hang in their, okay, and carry her name on by taking peices of her memory and putting them to use in your own life in honor of her ;)

I'm so sorry to hear this, Michelle.  Your friend sounds like a truly wonderful person, and I know that she is in loving arms now.  But, for those left behind, it is a difficult thing to understand and accept.  I'm hoping that God brings you some peace about all this.  Take care of yourself,   Hugs, Tina
