This morning I received one of those phone calls. One from a dear friend telling me that one of our own has passed away. I last saw Julie at the Rising Sun Youth Group reunion a few short months ago. I sat next to her and we caught up on each others lives. She said a couple of things in conversation that I wanted to talk to her more about. A couple of times I was going to make an effort to contact her so she could finish her thoughts. I didn’t do it. Now she is gone. Life is short and precious!
