From my journal March 14, 2002:
I know that Jason knew he was loved. He would never have been as secure as he was if he didn’t.
His heart was right with God. I know that. So was Alina’s. They are in the presence of God, singing praises before the Most High God. I pray that God make this good in a big way, that Jason’s heart would shine as a huge beacon – a beacon of love – a light shining to point the way to the heart of God.
So many people at the memorial service…nearly 500. And Alina’s was huge, too.
They impacted so many lives.
I just pray that their lives will be like a pebble in a pond with ripples radiating out from them, from their lives, that their lives would impact the entire world.
It’s just so tough on us who are left behind. I don’t know how to do this. I don’t want to have to do this.
