One day a player had a dream......In it she was walking along a pitch with the Soccer God Across the pitch flashed scenes from her life. For each scene Yasmine noticed two sets of cleat prints in the pitch one belonging to her the other to the soccer God. When the final scene of her life flashed before her, she looked back at the cleat prints on the pitch. Yasmine then noticed many times along the path of her life there was only one set of cleat prints and realized that they came at the hardest and saddest time of her life. Bothered about this, I knew she would ask the soccer God.......since I have decided to follow you, will you walk with me all the way? Yasmine, has already noticed that during the most burdensome times in her life, there it felt like it was only one set of cleat prints. Yas, then said I don't understand why when I need you the most, you would leave me.......The soccer God replied, my dear athlete, I love you and I would never leave you. During the times of trial and suffering, when you seen only one set of cleat prints it was then that I carried you.
I will never forget......Blessings onto Dad, mom, David and Sophie and the rest of the Tashman Family
The mass celebrating Yasmine's life was Broadcasted on the St. Raphael Catholic Church YouTube Channel beginning at 11am (6/5/2020).
Love from Coach Sul, your teammates and Toca Juniors F.C.
