I never saw her face-to-face.
I never heard the sound of her voice.
And yet, she touched my heart.
It has been a year since she passed away, and she is deeply missed. Alora M. Knight lived to be 99 years old, and she did not waste her time on earth. What a blessing it was to get to know her.
I work for a poetry website, and a couple of years ago we ran a poetry contest that she entered, so I corresponded with her. We had been publishing her poetry on the website for a few years prior, and I loved her heart, so I reached out to encourage her and thank her for sharing her poetry with us.
We continued to email back and forth a few times each month. We talked about life, family, and faith. We shared prayer requests with each other and gave updates about our day-to-day lives. She was a kind and gentle soul. She sent me letters and poems in the mail and shared about some of the miracles she experienced in her life.
