Only The Good Die Young

I am paraphrasing an old Billy Joel song here ... but am wondering if it very wll might be true.

There was a funeral today for a young lady who worked for me a few years ago ... her name was Lexie.

She was only 28 ... had recently become a full-fledged teacher and was well on her way to accomplishing her life's goal...when cancer struck.

By the time she was diagnosed it was already too late. It had taken over too many vital organs including her brain ... and there was no hope for a fight.

It saddens me that such a vibrant & meaningful life has been cut short.

I wish that it could be beaten in every case ... but the sad truth is ... it cannot.
