Our Beloved daughter
Our beautiful daughter and beloved sister, Hannah

Our beautiful daughter and beloved sister, Hannah

It’s with heavy hearts that Dawn, David Jr., Jonathan and I inform you that Hannah, our daughter and beloved sister went to be with the Lord on Tuesday morning. We grieve, but not like those that are without hope.

Hannah was a loving, caring, sweet young woman who the Lord used to encourage and bless so many. As Dawn, David Jr., Jonathan and I have been interacting with friends about Hannah’s passing we’ve been amazed by the stories. Just last night Hannah’s friends from IMPACT 195 organized a prayer vigil. It was a wonderful time, and we heard stories of how Hannah touched people’s lives and what she meant to them. It was an uplifting time amidst the pain we are going through.

Hannah’s encouraging spirit was used to lift up people in both the U.S. and in Mexico.

Hannah was a wonderful and loving sister. Her brothers adored her, and it was always so fun to see them together.

We must admit we don’t know why Hannah was taken at such a young age, but we know that the Lord’s plan is higher and better than ours. We know that Hannah’s in a place where there isn’t any more suffering, and there isn’t any more pain.

This passage in Isaiah expresses well some of what we are going through,

“The righteous man perishes, and no one lays it to heart; devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from calamity; he enters into peace; they rest in their beds who walk in their uprightness.”

Isaiah 57:1-2 ESV

Our family is thankful for the peace and joy that Hannah is now experiencing. The Lord has given friends visions of Hannah’s joy of being with her Father. That also gives us much peace.
