Early this morning a very special lady passed away. She welcomed me with open arms as a daughter when I married her son. She loved her grandkids and made it a tradition to come each year to watch the boys participate in the Pinewood Deby. We will greatly miss her here on earth but heaven has gained a beautiful jewel. I wrote the following poem that I wrote for her on Mother’s Day in 2014.
You are a man of faith,
Loving and serving the Lord.
You are a man of integrity,
Sarah devoured her last wild mushroom.
How much is another’s opinion worth to you?
Don’t worry about me. I’ll wait.
