Three deaths in the last week or so caught my eye for different reasons.
The first was about Lacey Holsworth, who I had written about not too long ago.
The 8-year-old girl had befriended Michigan State star Adreian Payne and had become a “fan” favorite of not only the player but his teammates and even the Spartan fans.
Her death came hard to all her newfound friends and supporters because they — like I and I am sure many, many more — were hoping she would win this fight.
There is something about a child dying that affects us — we ask all the questions and, quite frankly, there is no “answer” this side of The Veil; you just have to hope there is one that we will eventually understand and it’s all part of a Divine Plan that we cannot possibly comprehend.
