Presenting Your Piece
There must have been a time when you entered a room and met someone, after awhile you understood that unknown to either of you there was a reason you had met. You changed the other and they changed you. By some word or deed or perhaps just by their mere presence the deed had been done. Then maybe you were bewildered or humbled and grateful, then it was over. Each lifetimes are pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. For some there are more pieces, for these people the puzzle seems more difficult to complete. Some people seem to be born with a nearly completed puzzle. So it goes, souls going this way and that trying to assemble the myriad of parts...Please know this..No one has within themselves all the pieces to their puzzle. Like before the days they used to wrap puzzles in cellophane to insure all the pieces were there. Everyone carries with them at least one and possibly many pieces to someone elses puzzle. Sometimes they know it and sometimes they don't. When you present your piece, which is worthless to you to another, and whether you know it or not or whether they know it or not...
You are a messenger from the most high..
Thank you to my adopt a mom...for all the care you put into me as a child..
You were a huge piece in my puzzle and I will be forever grateful...RIP your pain is over...

I remember going to her house plenty of times in North Providence when I was with her nephew Chuck we have a daughter Jessica together, I can remember it all like if it was yesterday, She was a very sweet lady she treated me an my too children like family, And she had a finish basement That's where we spend most of our time she was always cooking something and I would be either watching her or in her bedroom watching TV, and I'll never forget about her telling me about the monkey....
May her beautiful soul rest peacefully up in heaven🕊as an angel🕊 with all the other beautiful angels🕊
