In loving memory of my late beloved Mother

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
~Washingon Irving

with lives even more temporary than our
own, live within a fragile circle;
easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we would still live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan....

Irving Townsend
Separate Lifetimes

Heavenly Rest where Mom is buried is full of all the things she loved
Beautiful animals in ponds, fountains, fresh air, flowers, birds singing,
Flowers trees and beautiful statues everywhere.
God bless you Mom.
Someday we shall meet again
I love you and miss you more each day♥

Today my beloved Mother would have been 77
I will bring her the most favorite flowers to her grave
Lilacs, Lily of the valley and roses................

I adore and cherish and love in Heaven as I did on Earth and miss you more
than words could ever say.

Moments to Memrories

We don't always realize how precious life is
Or how precious the moments are,
That we share
Until we experience the loss of some we love
And we face the greatest pain in life we must bear.
We recall moments that stir feelings within us
Moments filled with laughter, smiles and tears
Moments where trials and triumpsh were shared together
Moments to be cherished for many years.
And when the moments have turned into memories
We long to recover those days that have passed
Our memories will keep our loved ones alive in our hearts,
Where forever those cherished moments will last.

This verse was also in my late friend Bill Storey's memorial card.
He passed away on Sunday.


A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to

Leave the examination room and said,

'Doctor, I am afraid to die.

Tell me what lies on the other side.'

Very quietly, the doctor said, 'I don't know.'

'You don't know? You're, a Christian man,

and don't know what's on the other side?'

The doctor was holding the handle of the door;

On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining,

And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room

And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said,

'Did you notice my dog?

He's never been in this room before.

He didn't know what was inside.

He knew nothing except that his master was here,

And when the door opened, he sprang in without fear.

I know little of what is on the other side of death,

But I do know one thing...

I know my Master is there and that is enough.

Darkness deserves gratitude. It is the alleluia point at which we learn to understand that all growth does not take place in the sunlight.
