Flashback Friday 161

Today I am flashing back to 2004, when I was in Massage Therapy school. I have already done this, why am I doing it now? Well.... I just found out on facebook that VaLayne died. I was shocked. Especially since I just found out and it happened 3 years ago. I haven't talking to JaLayn about it (her daughter) so I don't know what happened, but I do know she was too young.

My time with VaLayne was short, just going through Tech school together, but in that short time, she became my mom away from home when I moved away from home for the first time and didn't have any family near by. I could talk to her about anything. She was so fun and kind and just one of us young girls. She had a love for learning, a love for the gospel and a love for her family... and everyone she knew. I truly loved that woman and am so thankful that I got to know her and spend time with her and that I was able to have her be a part of my life, even for a short while. I can only imagine how much her family misses her. So thankful for the knowledge we have of the plan of salvation.

What an amazing woman. Thank you VaLayne for your example, for your loving and kind spirit and for your gift to make everyone around you smile and feel loved. You are loved. You are missed.
