I want to thank Jordan Guinn for his remembrance of my granddaughter, Bekah.

Just 35 minutes old when I first held her, a love affair began that will never end. We shared horses (Tawny was really hers), baseball (go, Giants!), poetry, lunch and just hanging out together. She was literally my "right arm," my page-turner at Emanuel Lutheran as I accompanied the choir at the piano.

Bekah and her sister, Emily, had spent this summer helping vacation Bible school programs at several churches, as they would have at Grace Church in Lockeford the evening of July 19.

At the memorial service, presided over by Pastors Chris Townsend of Emanuel and Jonathan Winkleman of Grace, three churches were represented along with the entire staff of Smith Flat Academy of Placerville and many students, as well as family who came from some distance to share sorrow with us.

In just the short time she was given, Bekah left "footprints" behind that reflected her faith, her humor and her academic achievements. It seems she is gone too soon at 16, but I know God is in charge and will give us grace and strength to endure our loss, His gain.
