To Asia's Family,
I was in the first graduating class of Bertie Backus Jr. High School -- many years before it became the middle school Asia attended. As someone who grew up in the neighborhood, and has now returned there, I cannot pass the school building without thinking of the beautiful young girl who had just started school there, and obviously had such a bright future before her. Still, it was all God's plan, as he had another purpose, a higher purpose for Asia. Although I cannot even fathom the pain that never leaves you, and the emptiness you must feel every day, take comfort in knowing that Asia rests with God now, and He will continue to be your Great Comforter.
