Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather that something is more important than fear.
" Let no one despise your youth instead be an example to the believers in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. " 1 Timothy 4:12

To two sweet little girls named Ava and Zoe

You’ll never have to experience the pain of a bee-sting

or falling down and scrapping your knees. You won’t ever

have to feel emotions like anger and jealously. You won’t

have to worry. You won’t ever be sick. You won’t ever be bored.

You’ll be happy for eternity. Then why does it make us so

sad that you are gone? It’s because we wanted to meet you, you

are wonderful beautiful girls. But don’t worry about us, we’ll see

you soon, and then we’ll have a wonderful family reunion. It will

be the best of kinds with food, talking, and hugging. We’ll share with you

stories and you’ll share with us, and all of us will be in the presence of Jesus.

We look forward to seeing you both, we’ll try not to be sad. Make sure to give

Jesus a great big hug for us. We will always remember you both, and you

will always be in our hearts. Your cousin down on earth,

I was very upset when I heard that my twin cousin's didn't make it. I wrote this piece for their memorial.

Very sad but hopeful, often the feeling I get when I lose somebody. I'm so sorry for your loss, but somewhere else, two little girls are smiling!
