One of the new teachers Christy [Borders] said she was worried about how to tell her first graders. She said she sat them down in a circle on the floor and told them that Alicia had gone to heaven to be with Jesus. She was astounded when they all began clapping their hands! Rejoicing that Alicia was in heaven! Isn't that amazing that so much faith can be instilled in a little child.May we, too, rejoice in the thought of being with Jesus, just like these precious children.
Please keep Alicia's mother and the school in your prayers as God continues to comfort during this time of grieving.
