ACU bus crash victim’s faith praised during memorial service
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal in Texas reports:
Anabel Reid’s boyfriend told an audience of nearly 1,400 mourning his fellow Abilene Christian University classmate of his love for a “totally righteous babe of the Lord.”
Alex Wann described how he fell in love with the 19-year-old former Lubbock High graduate and Broadway Church of Christ member during the summer.
The couple talked about how they could develop their love for each other along with their faith and love for God. But God would always come first to Anabel, he said.
“I love you so much, but I love God more than you,” Wann said Reid told him. “She lived that kind of life.”
Reid’s devotion to God was why Wann and a handful of other mourners from Broadway Church of Christ said they were happy knowing Reid was in heaven.
