RIP hope&lori.

four years.
i can't believe its been four years since God took them home. we were just about to end our sophomore year of high school when they died in a car wreck on rocky fork road in smyrna. when they came up on the news that night my dad called me downstairs. he had no idea that i knew them, he just knew they were from my high school. turns out dad had driven by the car wreck that day. i attended their candle light vigil. it was beautiful but so sad. they were so young and had so much potential. i can only imagine what they could have accomplished. its hard to understand how God believes they had fulfilled their purpose. but at the same time, their life and death has touched so many hearts and changed them for the better.
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity."
1 Timothy 4:12
that is the verse used on the bracelets that were made and sold in their memory. they were on this planet for a mere fifteen years but oh the impact they had on dozens of hearts and lives. hope and lori, we will never let your memory fade...
