it has been 15 years since you died. I can still see you,lying in the hospital bed,Daddy lying next to you,holding you in his arms,Jan and I on the other side of the bed,Stephen at the foot. We watched and held you as you took you last breath...as your soul left your body and went to Heaven,to join your Mother,Father,sister and Brother. Part of daddy left with you..I know you watched as his heart could not bear to be without you.
You have been with me since then...stood by my side throughout everything I have faced as the kids grew..you were there when your great-grandchildren were born...you have been here to guide me and comfort me as no one else can.
I miss you every day.
One day,when it is my time..I will join you,Daddy,Jan and our baby Zeke..I will not be afraid as I know you will all be there with open arms.
As you always said..I was not born from your body,but from your heart. thank you for showing me..with love ,words and example..how to be a woman,wife,Mother,and Grandmother. You set the bar high...if I even am close,in your eyes....then it is good!!!
