I just learned yesterday that my childhood best friend’s daughter died March 5th. She suffered from a rare neurological disease – Ataxia Telangiectasia (AT)- that attacks the part of the brain that controls motor movements and speech. There is no cure and one can only treat the symptoms. Most children with AT die in their teens. She was 21 and loved working at the local animal shelter. It has been a long battle which they faced with hope and determination. My heart just fell apart over the news. Although the years and the miles had kept us apart my friend still means the world to me. I know that much healing of the heart needs to take place in the lives of those Kay has left behind. Please lift her family up in your prayers. Thanks.
Here are a few tributes to this wonderful young lady.
