11/2/1928 - 5/4/2017

As she reached the horizon where the sea meets the sky, we said, "there she goes," and she went out of our sight.  But...on the other side, she is just as great and powerful as she is seen coming, where others shout, "there she comes!"  Her size is not diminished, neither her person, or influence.  It's just our perspective from the shore. (paraphrased from the Hospice Little Blue Book)

My mom left this world around 5:30 on Thursday May 4th, 2017.  Yet, on that same day, at that same time, she entered eternity and I'm sure was greeted by the Jesus her savior, my dad, her dad, and other loved ones who had gone on before.

Rest in Peace Mom.  Love you.

Rachel, my heart breaks for those who have lost loved ones, but after catching your breath, I'm sure you will be able to celebrate not only her life on earth, but her joyful reunion with loved ones as well as the glorious adventure of meeting our savior!

Keeping you in my prayers,
