Great loss....Rest in Peace Rachel Cunningham

Our small local community lost a young member on Wednesday evening. Rachel Cunningham was diagnosed with a brain tumor a year ago and she lost her battle. She passed away peacefully in the arms of her sister, with her parents by her side. Our small community is very saddened by the passing of Rachel as everyone has been very supportive and fighting for her this past year. She was a great athlete, a great friend, a beautiful girl, with a heart of gold and she will be missed. I'll be honest, along with being sad, I get so angry when things like this happen. Why her? Why when she was so young and had such an exciting life ahead of her. My mom and I have talked about this before, and she said something to me that I try to remember in times like this. She worked with a fellow named Bill Raithby, who was a very sweet man. She asked him the same question one day, when a very young person had passed away. Bill's response to her was, "Do you think God wants to be surrounded by only old people?" So I try to remember this....even though it's hard. Take time today to hug the ones ya love....and make sure you let them know you do. Life is too short not to. Chow for now, Jacqui
