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.

It's been awhile but here is an update. It's been hot here in Illinois. Over a hundred a couple weeks ago. It's still in the upper 90's. I had been real because Gerry Bonar is still sick and in the hospital. He's doing slightly better now. I went to see a psychiatrist and he prescribed me some medicine that has really been helping. I feel so much better now. It's like the heaviness is gone. Also he was concerned about my weight so he had me tested for thyroid problems. The bad news is I have one but the good news is that's why I haven't been losing weight. I was so hard on myself but now I know what's going on and can get treated. I wasn't published by that magazine but I'm going to try another one I'm not going to give up. I love you mom. I admire you for not giving up when things got bad.

Mom,
I wrote an article about God's love and submitted it to a women's Christian magazine.
They are considering publishing it. I'm super excited just thought you should know.

Mom, I was having a rough day the other day. I felt you sent me those messages in those cards. For that I'm grateful. Thank you so much just for being there for me. It's good to know how much you love and care about me. I loved the cards so I bought them. I'm going to put them in a special memory box I make for you. Love you, mom!

Also Chris is doing really well. He has adjusted to the change and Darla is doing a good job taking care of him. Donna and Gerry have been more involved lately too which is a good thing. I send Chris packages for the holidays so he still gets things like you used to do for him. Blake got a new job and I'm hopping it will help him to recover. I think you know what I mean. I love you so much mom.

Mom, I have been having a hard time lately. Not everyone understands how much you meant to me and the very special person I know you to be. But I got a second job. I'm a banquet server. I work weddings and parties. I really enjoy it and it helps me to not be sad. I get to take part in peoples special moments. Being around others having fun reminds me their is joy in the world and makes me want to be happy. It also helps to know there are others dealing with things just like I am. I love you mom. I know you would have like me having this job too.
