Mama lived a long life, not always good or easy but, a long life. She tried to stay positive and in good cheer, even through trying and hard times. She loved a lot in her time and loved much in life. Puzzles and Flowers were a passion. She collected anything and everything anyone gave her. She cherished it. She tried to stay strong through sickness and illness but, her strength gave out but, Now she is no longer sick, weary or worn-out, she no longer suffers and is out of pain. She no longer gets angry because of the way she feels, or at not remembering what she thought she should. We shouldn't grieve because she is gone, we should be thinking"WOW" she got her cabin when God called her home. We all will go someday( just not today). "Oh what a reunion the family all had that waited on her arrival, welcoming her with arms wide open. Angels singing songs for mama and rejoicing that she had made it. With a garden full of flowers and bird's to sing, let these words create beauty and fulfill that empty space in our hearts, for mama will be missed by many and was loved by all.
