One of my great friends died last night on her way home to Arkansas. She fell asleep at the wheel. It hurts to hear stuff like that. It really does feel like a wave hits you and you don’t cry, you sob. Danaea was the most determined girl I have EVER known. She had everything together and was thankful for it. She loved Ukraine. She loved her family. She loved us, her friends. She was optimistic. She encouraged me…in fact, her last words to me were encouragement for me going to Africa. “It will be a life-changing experience for you Trent” she said. I know it will. This trip will be dedicated to you Danaea. I love you and I will miss you.
