It's been a rough few weeks with the passing of a friend. I first met Melody at a MOPS meeting shortly after we brought Annie home. She was a young, single mom who brought sunshine and smiles everywhere she went - even in her hardest times. She's undergone a series of medical procedures and surgeries in the past few years. But unexpectedly, and very quickly, she contracted bacterial meningitis and lost consciousness. Within days, it was clear that she wasn't going to make it.

Melody leaves behind three small children and a host of friends who loved her and will never be the same because of the fingerprints she left on our hearts. There's a lot of fear of the unknown for her children. A lot of sadness and "whys".

But also hope that she no longer has pain and is in the arms of Jesus, with her beloved daughter lost at birth many years ago.

Melody...until I see you again...
