It is one month today since your passing and I am still soooooooo greived and miss you so very much only to talk to you or share that morning cup of coffee as we did every day… A Mother- A Mother is the person in our life who loves us more than we love ourselves.. and slightly less than God loves us.

A Mother is the person in our life who anticipates all our needs… pushing her own to the background so ours can be met. Who has infinite patience with our shortcomings, she thinks we can do no wrong. Who has a real interest in our success, always hoping we we do well, and yet afraid we will out grow her. Who in our life is most likely to forgive us when we go wrong,, and wonder why the world will not do the same. In our life who makes our life a HOME out of a house, no matter how modest, with her warmth, love, generousuty, patience , and her very being. Who offered us constant refuge from the storms of life, comforting us in illness, hurts, and failures. The one who had unlimited faith in us, knowing that someday we will remember all she taught us about living, when we were young. The person in our life who measured her very existence by the values she has instilled in us… sharing secretly in our worthiness. A MOTHER IS THE PERSON IN OUR LIFE WE MOST TAKE FOR GRANTED… AND THE ONE WE WILL MISS THE MOST AFTER SHE HAS GONE ON TO LIVE WITH JESUS.

MOM, We celebrate this one month day in the birth of Isaiah Jospheh born one month to the day you went home to be with the Lord.He has entered our hearton this heavy day so that we will know with all the other singns and wonders that you are assuredly with our saviour Jesus. I will miss you for ever and the thing you have taught me to pass on to your grandchildren, and church family we all will miss you. Thank You for ever thing you thought me, for touching my HEART; and SOUL… IRENE Your loving daughter…

Only One Mother-

Hundred of stars in the pretty sky

Hundreds of bees in the purple clover

Hundreds of birds that go singing by

BUT Only one MOTHER the whole world over.

I Miss you so very much, Your at peace with Jesus, and that’s where I long to be, walking streets of Gold with thee. All My Love forever

Your only daughter, Irene.

Pam & Greg,

I am sorry to hear of Eleanor’s passing.

She often did my hair at the shop. She was a nice person and often talked about her family that she loved.

Made God be with all of your family.
