The greatest of these is love

The greatest of these is love through the Holy Spirit giving All the tools for us to apply during our time of earthly living. For some, we mostly do this well While others struggle to find their way. Then there are angels like Kaity Kinard Who guide us by example every day. Kaity never met a stranger To her everyone was a friend. Showing God’s love every minute. Shining His light until the very end. When Kaity walked into a room Her amazing smile shined so bright. No matter how bad your day was Her bubbly personality made things right. Parents want their kids to do well To work hard in all they do. Kaity succeeded in every way Her true heart for God always shining through. Kaity excelled in academics Rocked it in with indoor guard. No life was ever the same Once they met Miss Kaity Kinard. She found success with Landon Blessed to have found her true love. Living life with her whole heart An angel sent to us from Heaven above. Hearts are hurting with her loss, Especially Mom Ginny and brother Trent. But we can’t help but celebrate This young life of love so well spent. For having known Kaity Kinard We are all incredibly blessed. “Rest in Heavenly peace, Sweet Kaity Your work here - we’ll do the rest. God gave Kaity many gifts When He sent her from Heaven above. We’ll remember them all The greatest of these - her love. Written by Lori Hutto
