This one hits too close to home. Each of us will cope with this senseless tragedy in our own way. We’ve lost Natalie. Parents have lost a daughter, siblings a sister, and the family a member. Arbuckle and Pierce, a light, as well as the Davis Police Department, a rising star. Two things are comforting me. I am in awe at ‘we’ in this loss. The Corona Family has community standing tall behind them in defiance of hate. Community, I’ll define, as those that have risen to the occasion to show an outpouring of LOVE. This is no small community! It has broken the confines of a geographic area to cover an immense space and include countless individuals. I find solace in what this says. Second, Natalie’s father teaches a beautiful message. He states that God has a plan. Although we might not understand this loss or the trust in those things not seen, their faith in HIM is incredible strength.
May I add my testimony that our Heavenly Father does have a plan. You and I are essential to it and family is central! Because of Jesus Christ, ALL things will be made up to us. Natalie will be reunited with family and we will comprehend. I did not know you Natalie. Yours was a life taken all too soon. What I have gathered, you were on your way to perfection and most certainly an example. We are better because of you. The light that you left with those you encountered speaks to this and I will say that you will never be forgotten. Your family is in our prayers and we will continue to surround them with LOVE until you meet again. It will be right. All will be perfect.. ■
