After fighting brain cancer for two years 12-year -old Trinitie Lunsford of Dothan lost her battle to the disease. She passed away early Tuesday morning. She touched the lives of so many in our community, including James Dean and his family. They attended church together at Westgate Church of Christ. “You might run across two or three people in your whole life time that had her love and heart for people. She was just an amazing person,” said Dean.
Trinitie was diagnosed with brain cancer two years ago. She went through several rounds of chemo and radiation treatment. Despite her illness, family friend Alana Steven said Trinitie stayed positive. "She was always ready to give hugs and just ready to love you. It didn't matter who you were. She would love on you right then and there,” said Stevens.
Instead of sadness friends are reflecting on Trinitie’s life and the legacy she leaves behind. “She showed that agape love that GOD wanted everyone to see. That's how she touched people,” continued Stevens.
Trinitie attended Highlands Elementary where she delivered the morning announcements. She also attended Carver Magnet School, while only there for a short period of time, she still impacted so many. Her principal , Joey Meigs said he will remember her bright smile and encourages her friends and classmates to do the same. "Just knowing her just made everybody better and anybody that was around her couldn't help but fall in love. She was a great kid,” said Meigs.
Even in death Trinitie is still impacting lives. She donated her corneas to help give others the gift of sight.
