Such a bittersweet story.
Little 10-year-old cancer patient Elizabeth Pitts' biggest wish was to meet Josh Turner and so the Make-a-Wish Foundation arranged for Elizabeth and her family to receive tickets and backstage passes to Josh's July 17th Valdosta, Georgia tour stop.
Well on June 30th when little Elizabeth's health was failing and July 17th seemed a lifetime away, radio DJ Jeff Whitehead jumped into action and got the word out about Elizabeth's story.
The story made it to Josh Turner's ears and so he called Elizabeth the next day and sang to her over the phone. Then, just like a Hollywood tearjerker, sweet Elizabeth died just hours after Josh's call.
Just makes me glad that Josh jumped right on the phone to brighten the day of his littlest fan.
Elizabeth's obituary even mentioned her love of Josh.
She loved God and all the splendors only He could offer. She enjoyed fishing with her Daddy, cooking with her Mommy, and swimming with her Sissy. Elizabeth was an honor roll student at Pine Grove Elementary School. She loved music, especially Josh Turner, the color pink, and Tinkerbell.
I'm thinking Josh has his own personal guardian angel now.
Now go ahead and wipe away the tears and smile, it's a sweet story afterall.
