Please Stay

by Beth Saadati

I never want to forget Jenna's smile that lit up my world for fourteen years. If you can spare a few minutes to watch and remember with me, I'm almost certain you'll be glad you did.

Choose to live. Hope remains.

  6. So beautiful! Thank you for continuing to share Jenna with us. Even though I never knew her it's so evident how much you love her. I pray that you continue to receive more peace and strength from the Father as you continue to walk the long road of grief and loss.

    1. Each time I hear of another life gone, it cuts to my core and my heart cries out, "Not again." I'm so sorry about your cousin's loss, Erynn, and for the hurt and hole those of us left behind know. My thoughts and prayers are much with you.

    1. I'm not sure I knew you'd never met Jenna. She was one month younger than John. Several times, when I was teaching your son, I thought of how much Jenna would have enjoyed laughing, learning, and talking with him. Your words are good, Gail. Thank you for writing this.
