When we lost Kristin i told myself i couldn’t go through another loss of a best friend. i just lost one of my good friends in a car accident. she was driving but a truck t-boned her and she died the next day. it is so hard to go through this and now i truly understand that you never know what is going to happen next and you should always be prepared. with the deaths on kristin and now Lauren i have realized that driving and even riding in a car can be scary. I started driving about 5 months ago and am now afraid because not just one but two of my best friends have been killed by cars. just like kristin, lauren was a great person and believed in God and put all her trust in him. Earlier in the same week she had told her parents that when ever the lord was ready to take her she was ready to go be with him and serve him forever. God heard her plea and answered her prayer that was her one goal in life and now her dream and wish has come true. her license plate said “16 4 Jesus” which sums up her life perfectly. on all of her sports teams she was number 16 and she lived 16 years in Jesus Christ as her lord and savior. i’m writing this because i would just like to ask for anyone who reads this if you would please keep the Parker family in your hearts and prayers.

    Dear Ashley, (Original poster: Virginia Wiersma)It is always hard to lose a close friend, and especially one so young. Another of Kristin’s friends, Valerie Roberson, lost a dear friend in February of this year (you can read her post). We can take great comfort in the fact that Lauren knew Christ as her Savior. I am praying that God will give peace to you, to Lauren’s family and to her other friends. God bless,Kristin’s Grandma

    To Ashley (Original poster: Shelly L.)I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I feel for you and for your friend’s family. This side of heaven’s gate, we just won’t understand the “why’s” of all of this sorrow. We can only trust that God somehow uses deep pain and loss to mold us into the people He wants us to be, and hopefully to bring others to His kingdom. My prayers are with you. During this Thanksgiving season, you can rejoice in the knowledge that your loved ones knew Jesus.
