The Story

Eulogy for Momma

One of the many things I can say when I speak of my mother is that she loved her family. She would routinely do without so her children could have more. Even as far as wearing worn out clothes so we could have new ones. So I find it fitting to use this passage to define what love is.
1 Corinthians 13:4-10 New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails.
I believe one of my favorite authors Francis Chan said it best when he said “God’s definition of what matters is pretty straightforward. He measures our lives by how we love.” As I look around this room I see that love reflected in the eyes of those that cared for her.
With that we honor her memory by the love she shared and taught to us and we continue her legacy by the love we share with others. Remembering always that indeed love never fails. It conquers all.

Mom,

I also went to visit the house behind Sam's Town. I know you don't like that house but some of my best memories were in that house.

Love you mom

I also think Devin was going to spread your ashes at sea when he goes on a cruise. So I think there is a part of you there too. So just like when you were alive you have been everywhere.

Mom,

I'm here in Las Vegas visiting Gerry because he has been sick. I made these memorial stones with your initials on them. They say E.T.. I have spread them around different places I think you'd like. That way I a physical representation of you is there. Or at least was there at one time. Now you have many resting spots. I placed stones for you in a Garden in Munster, IN. I know you never lived there but it is a pretty garden with lots of butterflies nest there. I think you would like seeing those butterflies. I hope you see them all the time where you are. I also put out some stones here in Las Vegas. I placed some stones where the Nevada Palace used to be. I know that was one of the places you used to love going to. I also put stones at the drive in movies since we used to go there a lot.
You also have a tree dedicated to you by the insurance company in the Davy Crockett National Forrest in Lufkin.
