My Other Mom...

In the beginning we were fire and ice.
We clashed at every turn.
We had to work at building
the respect we each would earn.

Over the years we became the friends
we each hoped that we would be.
I knew I could count on you and
you could always count on me.

I’ll miss being able to talk about
the common interests we shared.
Our trips, Kincaid, and politics
and the other things we cared.

Farewell to the lady
that gave me my wife.
I’ll be forever grateful
I had you in my life.

***********
I am blessed that you were my
Mother in Law, but more, that you were my friend.

I just read this and my heart is breaking. Ms. Eula, such a wonderful woman and such a blessing. I personally never worked for or with her. But every time we worked in NWA we ( Nelson and I ) always met her for lunch. She and I would keep in touch every so often on Facebook. And I remember her smile when we gave her a Team Dora t-shirt. God truly got a good angel with her.
Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers

Mom,
We have been in each other’s lives for the past 31 years. Like most families we have had our ups and downs but, mostly we had ups. One of most most memorable times with you was when we had a one on one talk and you told me I was your fourth daughter. That day you made me smile and I’ve been so blessed to have been part of your amazing family. I’ve been very blessed to have you as a second mom . Thank you for everything. Dance and enjoy your life now pain free mom. I love you and I will see again .

Eula, the very first time I met you I was amazed. Deb and I were coming for our first visit after we were married. You asked what we wanted for dinner and I jokingly said Steak and crab legs. We got to your house and you were fixing it. I couldn't believe it. That's the Mother-in-law you were. You became a second Mom to me after I lost my Mother. You cared about family and treated me as a Son. I'll never forget that and will truly miss our visits. Eula, smile in Heaven and we will see you there. I love you.

Aunt Eula Mae was so headstrong and unapologetic. She told it like it was and didn’t sugar coat anything at all. We are going to miss the hardheadedness and stubbornness, but also the kind soul that she was. She loved her family more than anything and was always there for anyone who needed her. You will forever be in our hearts. ♥️

You were my sunshine when I had cloudy days. You was always there for me when I needed someone to cry and laugh with. You taught me right from wrong, love and respect and not to back down from anything I felt was worth fighting for. You fought your cancer with grace, poise and dignity which I am very grateful to have gotten to take that journey with you. I'm going to miss calling or texting you about our day or about the outcome of our favorite shows we liked to watch. Thank you for everything Momma I'm going to miss you with all my heart! Angie

Biography

To My friend,
Eula Wilson has been battling cancer for a while. Not many people can say that they love their boss, but, we did. She wasn't just my direct supervisor when I worked in Store planning. She was my sister in Christ, mentor, mother figure, confidant and friend. Few people have had the impact on my life that she has.
She is one of the strongest, most beautiful women I've ever known. Even though we haven't worked together for some time, our team was family. We spent more time together than we did with our own families, because our job kept us on the road. We bonded, had our ups and downs, just like all families. Throughout our time together we had times when we leaned on one another. Our families became each other’s family as well. Eula was a warrior and so much more. She was small in size but packed with sass, love, knowledge, charity, integrity, honor, dignity, respect and grace. Anyone who knew her knew she told it like it was. She was tenacious, brave and resilient. She held us to a high standard, expected excellence and she treated us like we were her own children. She was there through disappointments, tragedy, gave us advice, encouraged & chastised us. She shared in our laughter, joy, births & marriages. She always let us know she was only a phone call away. She's given so much of herself to others. I consider myself blessed to know her, to be called her friend. I'm heartbroken. I will miss talking to her on the phone, texting her, playing Words with Friends, meeting her for lunch, and our visits. She's going to get to be in the presence of our Lord. Our loss will be her gain. I'm confident that I will see her again in heaven someday.
There are just some people who leave an indelible mark on our lives, people who impact and challenge us to do our best. She's one of those people.
The past year has been devastating. It's been a costly year not just for me but for so many of my friends and loved ones. It's incredibly difficult to see people I love suffering. Words and hugs just seem so inadequate, prayers are powerful. Momma Eula is going to get to go home but her family is going to need every prayer raised up on their behalf.
Life is like a caterpillar to a cocoon. Momma, now you're going to get to be a butterfly. I'll see you again in a little while, I love you.
