My "Y Girls" were some of my favorite students at Sacred Heart. Yuridia, even in 6th grade, was full of life and love. I cannot recall a time without a smile on her face accompanied by a giggle. Even then, she loved to run. I swear her braid stood straight out as she ran. St Augustine said, "Take care of your body as if it will last forever, and take care of your soul as if you will die tomorrow. " I have no doubt that Yuridia fulfilled both parts of this, and that Jesus welcomed her with open arms. May God comfort you in your grief.
