May the friends and family of Ms. Markesteyn find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."

Colby and I were so close when I went to Myers and Jenkins. We shared many teenage moments .... We have not seen each other in a long time but I know we would still be right there sharing all of our secrets ?
