"Greetings from Sunny Florida!" Each time I saw a post from Kristy Dykes, that's what I remember her saying. Her positive attitude came shining through--ALWAYS. Something tells me even if she had lived in Indiana, she would have been positive.
Though our loss is certainly Heaven's gain, my heart aches with the passing of our sister in Christ and fellow writer. Kristy and I shared the same birthday and each year made a point to wish each other a happy day. It's only a couple of weeks away now. I will miss her note this year. But something tells me she'll be having her best party yet!
Her positive spirit was contagious and her love for the written word was inspiring. If you didn't know her, you missed out, and if you did know her--even if only a little--I'm sure she affected your life in some way, too.
Let's remember to pray for Kristy's family during these difficult days and the days ahead.
Kristy, we will never forget you!
