Dear JT Class family, 

I am heartbroken today by the news that one or our most teasured class prayer warriors, Lea Wilkerson McKnight, got her eternal angel wings this morning.  She fought the great fight the last 4 years with cancer. Her battle was won this morning when she transitioned from an earth angel to an eternal angel.  I say that so sincerely and from my heart. She loved and prayed for each one of us anytime there was a prayer request. 

Lea worked tirelessly on our last reunion.  If you were there, she even manned the registration table both nights  because it was her thrill to see everyone as they came in. She was already engaged and ready for the 50th reunion but before Christmas last year, after being in remission, her cancer returned.  She was under the care of a cancer center in Seattle, Washington that specialized in her cancer.  One of her sons lives there with his family, so she was able to be them while her treatments and assessments were ongoing.  That was a blessing in her life and this past year, she even went a few days early so that she could spend Christmas with them before her new treatments started.  What a blessing!  Many of us have been in touch with her while she has been in treatment.  We have prayed hard for her and she for us. She was not able to return home once it was determined the treatments were not working.  Her sisters were able to go there to be with her though and what memories they made with laughs and tears.  Harry, her husband, was with her too.  She transitioned to heaven while holding his hand.  

Please pray for Lea's family and friends.  May we all find comfort and peace knowing that our Lea will live on in our hearts forever and that she is our newest guardian angel.  Watch for her God winks!  When you see a beautiful butterfly, send her a message in heaven! 

As soon as I have the service arrangements, I will send the details.  I don't need to remind you all that we have seen the transition of 4 of our class family members this year and actually since February.  God has plans for each one of us and tomorrow is not promised for anyone. I want to say to all of you that I love you and am so thankful for you in my life! Prayers for all of you to be safe and well. 

Love and God bless you all,

Belinda Kelley Kromer
