God's New Angel...
These past couple of years, our motorcycle has introduced us to many wonderful people. One very special friend is Steve Meadows, a.k.a. "Brobubba" to our group.
Steve is a husband, father, law-enforcement officer, devout Christian, and a very, very good man. His daughter, Mabel, was born with cystic fibrosis, and fought a hard fight for over eighteen years. A little over a year ago Mabel received a double lung transplant, and on her seventeenth birthday she was able to blow out her birthday candles for the first time in her life.

Mabel passed on yesterday afternoon. Here is a link to the journal Steve has been keeping to document their journey: http://journals.aol.com/kissy1me/UpdatesonMabel/
Another friend, "Galute," posted this moving message to our motorcycle forum: http://www.gl1800riders.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=92004
So, go. Read. Weep. Hug your children. Thank God for every blessing. And say a prayer for Steve and his family in the hard days to come.
