Astrid of the Class of 2006.

Astrid of the many friends.

Astrid of the perpetual smile.

Serious determination replaced that smile when she played basketball.

Serious concentration replaced that smile in Geometry.

Shocked sobriety was on the faces of friends and classmates and staff today at SVA as we learned she died on her way to a friend’s place and was hit by a falling tree.

Astrid – the invulnerability of youth is a lie.

Astrid – the promise of the resurrection is a blessed hope in which we rejoice with her friends and family while we weep with them at her absence.
