25 years later.....

 25 years ago on November 5, 1987
our family lost a very special woman,
mother, wife, daughter, sister, niece, friend....
 This blog post could be about what we lost,
but that is not how she would want us to live,
so imperfections, faults, regrets, 
are put aside today,
to honor and remember the legacy she left....
 she loved us fiercely, passionately,
she loved being a mom,
and being with family,
 she made others feel special,
and relished time with family and friends,
 time was precious,
and not to be wasted,

 she was fun,
she made things fun,
she was a part of a close-knit community,
 she cared about others,
serving others was important to her,
 she was persistent,
through good times and rough times,
her church and church family
were central to her life,
 so these precious memories,
 we will hold onto,
and tell our children,
and their children,
to not forget,
we remember you, mom, and we love you still

John 16:33
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
