A few days ago a little princess went to dance in heaven. The Princess I am speaking of is a little girl named Lacy. She was a cute and happy little girl. Despite her age she inspired many to smile.
During the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament, I heard bits and pieces about Lacy and her “brother”, Adreian Payne, from my father and a few friends. I fell in love with their story and the bond between them. I knew there was a Big Ten featured YouTube video about their story, but I had yet to see it.
The day before Lacy passed away I finally watched the video. It was amazing! The day Lacy past away I was casual scrolling through twitter and saw some had tweeted it. I literally gasped. I could not believe it. I didn’t expect to see such sad news. I would be lying if I said I didn’t hold back some tears.
The message to take away from Lacy is even though she was going through a hard time; she always found time to smile. This is a message that everyone should take and apply it in their lives. Always try to smile even if you are going through a hard time in your life.
My heart goes out to the Holsworth family and Adeian Payne.
