On August 30, 2003, Angie
(Hanna) Lee was killed in a tragic car accident.
Angela Michelle Lee, beloved
daughter of Joe and Barbara Hanna, was killed in a car accident in Phoenix,
Arizona on Saturday, August 30, 2003. Angie was 33 years old. She
was the devoted mother of Sophie, who will be one year old on October 13, 2003.
Angie's husband, Eric, has
moved to Olton, TX with Sophie. His mother will care for Sophie when he goes
back to work.
Angie was a true servant of
God. We are comforted by this knowledge. The day after her death, Eric
worshiped God as did Job after the death of his ten children (Job 1:19-22).
Why was this very special
Christian taken at such a young age? During the Wednesday night devotional, a
man commented that if Christians never suffered hardship, people would want to
be Christians for the wrong reasons. We pray that Angie's good works will live
on in the lives of those she helped, and that God will be glorified.
In order that Sophie may
someday "know" her mother, I (Barbara) am making a book with letters to Sophie
and comments from those who were touched by Angie's life. The book will be
given free of charge to those who want to read about her life. (The book will
not contain any letters which are marked confidential for Sophie only.) It is
my hope that Angie's life will inspire others to greater service to God. May we
all remember that this life is short and we must always be prepared to meet our
Maker. One of the letters may be read by clicking here.
Because of this tragedy, I
will not be writing any new Bible lessons for a few months. I will continue to
sell what I have already published. I will make every effort to complete the
Old Testament series of RWS lessons by the end of 2005, but I can't make any
Many have asked what they
