Holly, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says, “There, she is gone.”

“Gone where?”

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side, and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “There, she is gone!” there are other eyes watching her coming, and there are other voices ready to take up the glad shout, “Here she comes!” And that is dying.

We have lost a great warrior of God’s. I certainly would be there with you all if at all possible, as I share in the grief of the passing of Aunt Rose. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all.I have many memories that shall stay with me and my family. Josh said “Mom when I met her, she smiled and talked to me like she knew me every day of my life, she made me feel important”. I think she made everyone feel that way. “Aunt Rose, you were loved”.
