God needed you home right away for official business in Heaven. His will be done and now you really are an Angel. I knew something was different about you back in school and i know now you were just hiding your wings! Hug Jesus for me!

I knew Lindsey for a few months before I left Sutton. I had the privilege of mentoring her that year. She was hard working, strong, eager to learn, and extremely dedicated. She fought this disease,hard! The world has lost a gem, and there are many students that will never get the opportunity to be taught by such a great lady! My prayers are with her family.
