Life is extremely fragile, and I was recently reminded of this. Two friends of ours, a couple who literally have hearts of gold, lost their beautiful granddaughter to a boating accident three months ago. Ashley was only 20 years old and had a bright future ahead of her. She was a star volleyball player, taught Sunday school, loved life, and had a golden heart just like her Grandma and Grandpa. I’m convinced she’s sporting extra sparkly wings and is sending tons of love to her family and friends.
When I was told about the tragedy, I knew a sympathy card wouldn’t be able to convey all of my feelings. I sat at my art table and created the following painting as a gift for the family.
Ashley will forever live in the many hearts she magically touched.
