She's gone

A neighbor just stopped by to tell me that my Amish friend Melissa, who I wrote about this morning, died last night.

The Amish communities here have church every other week. It seemed odd to me to see so many buggies yesterday, when I knew that church had been the previous week. Turns out, according to the neighbor, that they all those families – 18 buggies altogether – spent their Sunday morning and a good part of the afternoon singing to Melissa.

She surely loved that.

Prayers to your neighbor Melissa and her family and to you, too. So glad that the families sang to her. Gone too soon.

So sorry to hear this. I love that the community came together in prayer and song for her. I am sure she loved that.
