They are much stronger than simple thoughts
and more powerful than words or images
can convey. These memories rekindle
aromas in the kitchen, laughter around the table,
plants in the garden and smiles upon arrival.
These memories transcend time:
illuminating the past,
preserving the present,
molding and shaping tomorrow.
These memories are
imprints of God’s devotion and
impressions of His legacy, These memories
create a mold of humility and purity.

They shape all that we hope we are
and everything we aspire to be. Together, these
memories weave a story of a remarkable person.
They create the exceptional and distinguished
story of a mother, a caregiver, a nurturer,
a mentor, a hero and a friend...
