I am so sorry to have missed this. I knew Misty when she was 11 or 12. I was very close to her father, and I was with both of them, and we had a birthday party! I have a precious picture of the three of us that I have valued more than you can possibly know. Misty turned out to be so sweet and strong just like I remember her, and I remember her well. I should have been in touch sooner. Perhaps her daughter Jinna would like a copy of this picture? With much love to the entire family. God bless you all.

When there is a death, yes, in spite of it all, life itself must go on. May the family find as much normalcy in the coming weeks as they possibly can while experiencing the peace of God that will surpass all thoughts and guard their hearts and mental power. (Philippians 4:6-7).
