This afternoon I found out the terrible news that one of my American cousins had passed away at the young age of 33 from her sister also my cousin. Minutes later after immediately phoning my parents they received a phone call from America from our Aunty also breaking the news of her granddaughters passing.
Meredith Joy has left behind her husband and many family members in America and the UK who will be grieving at this time.
Finding out this tragic news was really hard to process to try and understand how someone so young could be taken from this world and taken from her family and friends.
Life is so precious and none of us know how long we have on this earth, I would never of imagined that Meredith’s life would be so short in comparison to others. It really make me remember that life is such a wonderful thing and each day we are given is such a gift that’s why it is called the present.
I pray that Meredith Joy may find peace and that God may welcome her into his house. I light this candle for you Meredith and pray for you and your family.
