  3. Thank you for sharing your friend’s story and your story. It is obvious that our Father brought the two of you two together all those years ago for a purpose. And that purpose continues as you share this story.

  4. Your beautiful memories… I cried right along side you… It was your Smiles and your laughter that made me realize that friendship is one of the most uplifting, lifelong bonds that pull you through the tough days. I felt your friendship, your bravery, your dedication to Heather and God shining his light, even to her last days. I can’t stop crying, because we always question why …..today, I learned to honor and acknowledge it was because she LIVED that we celebrate her and honor her always.. THank you xoxoxo ~ leelee

  5. Ahna, what an amazing tribute to your friend Heather. I have lost two best friends in 2019. I shared over thirty years of friendship with both. I ask God to help me in this time, to lift the crushing weight of grief that has come over me in the past two years. Thanks for sharing your story and the power of belief in God and his son. I as well as you believe that one day we will all see one another again. “Between grief and nothing I will take grief.”
    William Faulkner

  6. This story of friendship, love, loss, grief and eternal life is so very beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Thank you for sharing your precious friend, the story of your friendship and the hope of Jesus Christ! He uses all things, Ahna! (Romans 8:28) My son who has struggled with a brain tumor, for the last ten years, also told me if his journey brings one person to Christ it has been worth it. The beauty of suffering at its finest….

    How blessed you were to have each other! What a brave, loving friendship you gave to each other.

    Praying for your heart, Ahna! ????

    1. Oh wow, Kim. I can’t imagine watching a child of mine suffer. It’s almost harder to see it in the ones you love. I am SO blessed. Romans 8:28 is one of my very faves. Praying for your family and your son right now that someone would come to know Jesus through his story- for his earthly joy and God’s eternal glory. Hugs to you all this Christmas season.

I believe God brings people into our lives for many, many, reasons. How perfect a match he made with the two of you! I see everything you did for her and I am amazed.
