My heart is heavy again today. Still, I rejoice for the gain of Heaven. Our loss means that another beautiful soul created by God has returned to Him in His own good time.

Just a few minutes ago, my friend Beth informed us on face book that another friend has passed away. Some of you may remember that only a couple of months ago, we lost another friend and classmate, Reed, to heart disease.

Alta lost her very brave fight with breast cancer on 5 May, 2015. Beth discovered Alta's obituary while trying to make contact with her about an upcoming class reunion.

Alta and I were in our high school's chorus during my last year in school. She had many friends both in and outside of chorus, and was liked by students and teachers alike. She truly had the voice of an angel, and I will always remember her for her bright smile and friendliness.

Just last month, the school also lost one of its teachers of many years. Mr. Whitney also passed away from cancer.

And so, another angel joins the choir of Heaven to sing to our Almighty Father.

Rest in peace, sweet Alta. Until we meet again, we will love and miss you.

It's sad to lose classmates, I always remember them as young, not as old as I am now.
