A Great one
This week we got some hard news. An old friend from high school passed away. It's been really hard and honestly it just hasn't set in, but it has also made me realize a lot of things. I met Reese while playing soccer, but we became better friends through Young Life. I remember going to camp with him and him letting me play ultimate with the guys. He always had the sweetest smile. This is what got me thinking. I am so thankful for what Young Life meant to Reese and what it meant to me. We were always up in the middle of everything. I am so thankful for the relationship that he had with his leader and I am ever so thankful for the relationship I had with my leader. My life has been changed in so many ways. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to be involved in YL. The way this has brought our old friends together is a true testament to who Reese was and how much he was loved. You are truly one of the great ones. Love you Reese.
