I did not know I would die
|Barbie lost her life at the very young age of 14. She was
at her girlfriend's house to spend the night and they were outside not far from the house. Two men with guns grabbed
the girls and forced them into a car. Both girls were brutally murdered. According to the newspaper clipping, the
two were sweet, bright girls and good students. They both wrote poetry; Barbie wrote several concerning her faith.
Barbie was a born-again Christian since the age of 11 and had a beautiful relationship with the Lord, our Savior. Her Dad passed away in 1995, and she had a little sister that died when the baby girl was only 2 days old. We know Barbie is in heaven and has seen the precious face of God.
Joy, Barbie's mother, wrote the poem above in her daughter's memory. She says she feels God was guiding her to write it.
Joy subsequently visited Barbie's killer in prison, completely forgave him, shared with him the love and forgiveness of Jesus, and prayed with him.
