My heart is broken, not for Aunt Janet, for I know where she is, but for my Uncle and Cousins and my 2nd Cousins..and for her Brothers, Sisters-in-law, Nephews, Nieces and all those of us who were Blessed to spend time with her. What a wonderful impact she has made on this Mother Earth and what a glorious celebration Heaven must be having because of her presence..Every memory of time spend around her was the greatest to me, and I sat in awe most of the time, just being quiet so I could hear her speak. If I had to choose one word to describe such a Beloved one as she, it would have to be 'GRACE'...for she is the epitome of Grace. I pray;
Father God grant us peace and comfort in this most pai
...nful time, guide us thru this hurt-filled haze with the light of your love Lord and may we continue her legacy within our own lives,our own families, our Church's' and our communities, and may our memories serve as reminders that we will all be together again, according to your will Father God, I ask these things, in Jesus Holy Name, AmenRead more
