Points to Ponder ...

  • "My children may bicker, and I may—almost certainly will—complain. But the bickering and the griping are chaff, and what’s left when the winds of time carry them away are the golden kernels I want to savor..." --Melissa Wiley

Sorry to hear of your loss. Love & prayers to all.

So sorry to hear about your loss. She sounds like she was a fantastic gal here below, and she's going to have a wonderful time with our Lord. Still, sorry for all those missing her. I will pray for the repose of her soul and for consolation for all who love her.

Aw, nice post, Ei! I hadn't heard all of those stories. I like the one about Aunt Winnies wearing her bracelet so she'd be jingling down the hall for Uncle Bill to hear!
Love ya and I like ya!

This is beautiful Eileeny! My favorite story from the funeral is the one that Katie, Theresa, and JoAnne each shared with me. About four days before Aunt Winnie died she had a really hard time breathing and the girls had to prop her up and pound on her back to help her clear her airways so she could breathe and she said, "Oh, our poor David. Here I am old and about to die. I cant' imagine how hard it must be for his little girls to have trouble breathing like this everyday. I want to have a memorial to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation set up when I die so maybe someday they won't have to suffer like this." Yes, I love that Aunt Winnie, and I too am so proud that this is the stuff we're made of:)

Eileen - Thank you so much for the beautiful words about MOM - I have been having trouble crying (mourning) being so busy and "in Charge" but stopping to read your tribute helped that along - I feel much better now!! Thanks for the joy and the tears!! I so enjoyed seeing your family - they are wonderful - May God bless and protect them all!! And you - my dear cousin - are one very special lady - keep up the good work!! Much love - through the tears - Joanne

Hello! HELLO!? Where are you, Eileenie?
