Our Lindsay. Suddenly she drops out of the family pictures

....There have been meals with an empty chair, 2 high school graduations without her, 3 college graduations she missed, two post graduate celebrations without her picture in the group, three births and many holidays, everyday occurrences and her own birthday and that of Emily for 15 years that she has not come. We do not grieve as those who have no hope, but, oh my, do we grieve! Lindsay's last act was heroic; not as a first responder, not a paramedic, not a firefighter, but as believer in Christ who cared about others. She was killed on her way home from a prayer vigil for our nation on Sept. 11, 2001. She laughed, she cared, she had depression and a panic disorder, she encouraged her brothers and her friends, she couldn't wait to be a mom, and she loved hard and fully! The world didn't get to know her for long but she won. Now she is with our Wonderful Savior doing whatever departed saints do. We will all be together soon. She would want us to serve with all our strength now that her faith is sight. And we are trying to do that, to the glory of God. We love you, honey and we will see you soon! Mom and Dad.
