Mom, I am so proud to be able to deliver a eulogy to celebrate your life. I've been interviewing some of those close to you and will speak with your Mom Sunday to finalize a great message that I know you will hear from above. I love you, I miss you, but won't miss the suffering you had over the last months and weeks. Heaven has gained an angel. Dad has selflessly taken good care of you, as your only wish was for him to be "ok" after all was said and done. The whole family has spent the last few days together, and we enjoyed dinner last night. We'll be gathering again late this weekend to celebrate you life on Monday.
I know that heaven has plenty of cats and brushes to stroke them with; Milkshakes, VHS and DVD movies, board games, and people for you to talk to.
My family has enjoyed each of these in your celebration over the last few days, as well as a walk on the beach - which you loved to you.I have to admit - we skipped the Christmas shop - but had you in mind as we passed :) Take care my Mom!
