To Steve, Sam and Family, Sarah and Family and Stacie and family, I wish I had something comforting beyond the usual platitudes, thankfully, we do have our Faith. I am certain that your Wife and Mom is well and happy and greeting all those she loved that have gone before her. For each of you, the work here remains as you go on with life here without her nearby. Remember, though, her love , the sound of her voice, her giggle and her gifts of life to you will always be with you. For me, she was most like a sister I never had. Just enough my senior to ask me to look at things a different way. She was my “teddy-bear-collecting-bestie”, my “We can make that” partner in crime, a campers camper, my “let’s stay up and watch QVC all night” marauder, A teaching partner like no other, even if she taught in the hallway! We laughed until we cried every time we were together and on the other hand cried until we laughed trying to handle this old life. BE CERTAIN OF THIS: She loved Jesus with her whole heart and each of you as well. Please seek God through this horrendous loss so that, God willing, we will join her one day in Paradise!
