Preslie Slatton

It is hard to look forward to Christmas with so much sadness around. Yesterday Preslie Slatton passed away. She was only 12 and I believe she had leukemia. I can't imagine how her family is feeling and I know that it changes everything they were looking forward to this week. Christmas will not be the same this week for many people in our community that have lost a loved one. It breaks my heart to think of them and what they must be going through. I am blessed with healthy kids and a wonderful life and I am trying to learn to never take that for granted. We never know when it will be over. Tell your family you love them and enjoy your holiday while praying for the Slatton's, the Kirby's and the Gay's. Also pray for Andy Dunn as he has his tests done this week.

Merry Christmas everyone!

This is so sad :(. My daughter Kennedy was in treatment for AML at Vandy the same time as Preslie. She was such a special little girl!
