Today is Mom's funeral and this poem is lovely for anyone wanting to express this in a great way.....

Ada Dransfelt has long been a friend and student of mine and she is incredibly talented. Her daughter Pam sent me this poem she wrote and I put it in the bulletin today they will hand at out at church at the funeral for my Mother. I wanted to share this with you.
FAMILY REUNION
I used to dread the change called death
It bothered me a lot
To think today I might be here
Tomorrow I might not.
Since then my life has shown me
That God is always near.
If I’m His child and live in Him
What change have I to fear
For somewhere in His universe
A door will open wide,
And those I loved, and thought I’d lost
Will welcome me inside.
Ada M. Dransfeldt
Love to each of YOU

Mary Lou,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mother. I know how hard it is to loose a parent. My Mom passed away September 2008 and there isn't a day that goes by I don't think of her. May your memories of her bring you much peace.
