Our precious young friend, Leah Conner, died yesterday afternoon from a brain aneurysm.
Leah was so full of life and vitality. Yesterday morning, she dropped her two little boys off at Grandma's, kissed them, said "I love you! Bye, Bye!", went out the door, and never returned.
She experienced a severe headache in the morning at work, which grew so painful that they decided to take her into the emergency room. A few minutes later, with her husband, Aaron, by her side, she slipped into unconsciousness.
The staff worked valiantly to save her, and then she was airlifted to Duluth. They pronounced her dead at 5:54 pm.
The family made the courageous decision to donate her organs to others who need them. This course of action prolongs everything -- but it was the good and right thing to do -- and they all agreed that Leah would have wanted it that way.
I am so happy Leah knew Jesus. She was a part of our church since she was a little girl in Sunday School. I recall those days well. I conducted Aaron and Leah's wedding, and dedicated their two little ones, Austin and Hayden.
Leah's faith shone brightly through all the adversities of life. She has a positive and loving outlook, which inspired others. She taught Sunday School in our Nursery for several years, and recently redesigned our church webpage.
We're going to miss her. Please pray for her family as they try to figure out how to proceed from here.
