Too young, but we must believe in God's timing... Lisa West went to be with Jesus today. An email from a class member said Shelby, her mother, got to be with her when she died. I can't imagine any more heartbreaking experience. But for a Christian, it is a magnificent comfort to know your child is with Jesus, in His loving arms. Her service is Wednesday at our church (Wynne Baptist), beginning with visitation from 9 to 11, service at 11 and then burial in Cogbill Cemetery, which is just walking distance from her home. (I have seen Lisa and David walking the paths around the cemetery before, when I'd have Oscar up there.)
May God bless Lisa's family - David, Matthew, Mallory, Shelby and Jimmy, and all other family and friends. She will surely be missed.
We love our Shelby, our friend, our teacher, and she loved - and loves - her Lisa.
