I know this is a difficult time u have mixed feelings as you know your mother is so much better off in heaven with her Lord , she is healed & has no pain. ! I say that but I will tell u that u will miss your mother everyday! Something will remind u of her, or have a question u wished u had asked her.! When Jack told me my first thought would be Mother will be so excited to see her. Mother loved all Noreen,s poems , letters. She would read them over & over again. Made her day to receive them as she missed everyone! Daddy would say stuff like this “ Patsy that Noreen is so smart !” She wrote stories about our trips we took together, she is amazing!
My daddy had recited an old Indian prayer he wanted said at his funeral. He told me to remember the words of this poem called “ I Am Not There” ! This had always given me comfort in loss of my parents I hope it helps each of u & especially Mr Johnson. David & I cannot attend funeral but know each of u are in our prays for peace & understanding. Love Patsy Liveoak
