In Memory of....

Proverbs 31:28 (NIV)
Her children arise and call her blessed
December 11, 1928 - July 15, 2008
In Memory of my "other Mom". It's so hard to believe that it's been a year since we lost Pappy's Mom. She had a lot of health problems, but still her death was so unexpected. I miss my Daddy....and Jack's Daddy....but there's just something so very tragic about the loss of her. She was definitely the "glue" that held our family together, and without her we seem to not be as close, or just can't find the time to get together, like the effort we made when she was still with us. I think back on some sweet memories I have of her. I'm not sure that anybody loved Christmas any better than she did, and oh, it was amazing at the gifts she bought every year. Just the other day, I thought of something that I needed to call and tell her. As I get older....I realize just how precious life is....and we're definitely not promised tomorrow....or, even the next couple of minutes.
Love your family....look over things that don't amount to a "hill of beans"....and always say "I love you" to those you love....because you never know when it might be the last time you'll get the chance!!!
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!


  1. Awwww bless, I think its great when you have somebody like that in your family. I'm not really sure we had/have any glue in ours but I know that my hubbys gran was definitely the glue in their family. She'd organise the greatest get-togethers and it was lovely for me (as a new girl in the family) to meet all the relatives. His gran died about 5 years ago and now we only get to see his relatives on occasions such as deaths and marriages. And my own family aren't really any closer....with the exception of my immediate family who do our best considering we live 100-300 miles away from each other.

  2. i miss her so bad. i miss asking her how to cook something. i so want her to see our house. now i'm crying. i just need to go far far away by myself and just cry all i want.


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
