Joe ~I wish I could be there. I can think of a thousand things to say … and nothing to say. I…KNOW she’s in a better place; I KNOW she’s in the Lord’s presence, worshipping Him; I know she is no longer suffering~she bore a heavy burden and kept it largely to herself. She was brave and inspiring. God allows us to live a certain number of years and your Mom lived them the very best way she knew how. She was quiet yet there was great strength in her silence. She possessed a very funny but DRY sense of humor and was sharp as a tack – not much slipped by her. Our lives may seem uneventful and we may never accomplish great renown but know each of our lives count ~ if not in the eyes of man, definately in God’s eyes! I know one day we’ll meet again – God keep you, Joe ~ and Ina and Denzil and Karen. In spite of my tears I can rejoice for she is released from this troubled world. With much love and sympathy for your sorrow ~ Joyce Cortese Rodgers
