My letter to the grandchildren (of my mom) was a beautiful way to honor my mother and allow her legacy to live on in them.
The memorial ceremony provided the closure needed to fulfil my mom's wish of having her bodily remains buried with her mother, father and brother.
The ceremony also provided an opportunity to weep and mourn for her passing.
Then, as written in Ecclesiastes, a time to laugh and a time to dance.
Ecclesiastes 3:4 (ESV)
a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance
We chose to laugh and dance in the water for the remainder of the weekend, spending time with extended family and rejoicing in togetherness. Thank you to Jessie & Nick, Jon, Chris & Alyssa, Rick (Uncle Great!) & Deb, Cory, Beth, Lucas & Dillon, Tracy, Dustin & Brayden and Mandy for joining me and my family!
Of course, T1D came along for the fun . . . quite a few lows from all that swimming!!!!
And now, a time to rest . . . .
