Beautiful Ginger!

A beautiful and wonderful friend was taken home today, far too early in my opinion. I am still in total shock and disbelief. She went to sleep last night and never woke up. She was taken to the hospital where they found that her heart just stopped. She was young and healthy and Heavenly Father just must have needed her. That's the only explanation I can come up with.
Ginger was...
just 30 years old
a wonderfully fun and loving mother
a wonderfully fun friend
a dedicated and loving wife
a sweet daughter
a sister to 10 siblings
She was one of the most real and genuine people that I knew. And I will miss her so much. I don't understand why Heavenly Father took this beautiful, young mother. But I have to trust that it must be for something really important and special. Don't you just wish you could peek through the veil, just for a moment, to get a better understanding of Why? I guess that's where faith comes in....Why is it just so hard sometimes?
Ginger, you will be missed terribly by many including me. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and loved ones.
I love you, Ging!

so horribly sad. I read her blog just now and could help but cry. My sisters friend in Maryland died suddenly and left 4 small children last year. Why does this happen!? Just take us when we're old and gray!

How are you doing??

That is so sad...what happened to her? How did you know her? So so sad. I hope her family is okay.

Jen Lynn said...

Wow. I don't even know what else to say.

Sonja said...

I'm so sorry for your loss. The world needs good mothers! But you are right, Heavenly Father has a plan and we can find so much comfort in it.

Thinking of you.

My condolences and prayers are with you for comfort and for Ginger's family. It is a very sad thing. I can't even imagine going through that as a spouse or as a friend.

I am so sorry. She sounds like a wonderful girl. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. It's always hard to understand when HF takes someone so young... I think you are right, that is where faith comes in. Love you.

Jill Hunt said...

That is the saddest thing! Especially so young and I think of those poor little children. I hope they are all holding up and I know Heavenly Father will truly bless their family!

I'm so sorry, Poppy. What you wrote was beautiful. My thoughts and prayers will be with all those who knew and loved her.

Poppy, this is Kate, Ginger's sister. I met you once. I found you from her blog. Such a sweet tribute to her. Thank you. Ginger loved you, and always had great things to say about you. You both were blessed to have each other in being close friends.

fyi- The doctors ruled out aneorism, clot and still nothing conclusive. Just that it was a sudden stop of her heart. You might want to change it on your post.

Take care and k.i.t., Kate
