Mrs. ~B~ died this week. She was 95 years young. The boys and I went to see her in the hospital last weekend before she died. She had a gleam in her eye and told us not to be sad, but to be happy for her. She was ready and eager to go Home.
Today at her funeral they read the poem that she had shared with us at dinner several years back. I was glad to hear it again. It was also good to hear about all the lives that she had touched over the years—mine was just one of many.
I was able to dig through the archives and find a few glimpses of how she touched our lives:
My favorite quote is:
“Always look up. You can always find something bad about every situation. You just have to choose to ignore it and look for the good.”
Farewell, for now, Mrs. ~B~. We love you.
