I hope that by now, some of the sadness of my departure has begun to wear away. Think of me with a smile as the mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who shared your laughter, tears and dreams through the years. I lived a great span of years and enjoyed them all. I loved a good man and was loved in return. I cradled a daughter in my arms and held the hands of two young sons.
Think of the happy times:
Good friends and good times.
The summers at the lake.
And the thousands of times we were together as a family.
When you see a star in the sky, look at it with love and let it come into your heart and remember me.
