A 13-year-old who inspired many to give a thumbs up lost his fight against cancer. Lane Goodwin died just before 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Read again, THIRTEEN years old. No playing on the football or basketball team. No prom. No sweet sixteen. No driving a car. No motorcycles. No making out behind church. No first beer with dad. No sneaking a cigarette. No more homework, no more school. No college. No fishing trips. No piercings, no ink- except where they may have marked him from years of chemo. No longer a big brother. Not in his bed to say prayers and kiss good night.
No longer suffering -he leaves his family to suffer over his death as they celebrate his life.
May God watch over his soul and his family.
No more cancer, please.
