|Leah Goff, age 13, from Facebook|
When I started this blog I had no idea that I would ultimately be profiling so many young people who died from more or less, the same set of causations which took Daniel. What was felt to be rare, most certainly is not. This week, A Floyd County, Virginia , 13 year old Leah Goff collapsed at basketball practice, and like Daniel, could not be revived. Leah died in Roanoke, Virginia doing what she loved to do, which was playing sports. No autopsy information is available but the scenario is highly suggestive of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, like so many others not only in Virginia, but throughout the United States, and throughout the world as well.
"Leah Bug" as her loving family called her, was an avid sportswoman who loved basketball and other sports and who had recently discovered track.
I am sure that Daniel and many others will be there to support Leah as she enters the Kingdom of Heaven. My hope is that Leah's sisters, parents, family, and friends finds all the comfort and support they can. Funeral arrangements are said to be complete. May they all feel God's loving hands during this very difficult time.
