God Called Her Home

After experiencing a severe brain aneurysm several weeks ago, God called Lanisha, Janna's sweet friend home this week. Lanisha had a beautiful heart and smile that would light up the room.  Her kind heart and her love of life will be most remembered.  She loved to run and hang with her friends.

We had the pleasure of seeing Lanisha and her brother grow up from little children, playing with our kids, to beautiful young adults.  My heart just breaks for her family. Being a mom, my heart just aches for her mom. 

Last night I hugged my children and husband just a little bit longer and thanked God for my family.

If you are a runner/walker in the Kansas City Area, please visit Go Orange for Lanisha, a run/walk to help celebrate her life and thank God for the time He shared her with us.  (All proceeds will go toward her family to help with medical expenses.)  We'll be there....
