Here’s the poem I wrote and shared at the funeral:

Immeasurable

How do we measure a life?
In the number of breaths we take?
The amount of friends that we make?
In the number of days that we are awake?

Or is it measured by the lives we touch?
The people we love such,
Or the faith we need so much?

Life should be measured by the smiles and the hugs, the laughter and love, and the strength from above.

So what do we do when our time has come?
Do we run away?
Do we stare death in the face?
Or do we welcome it with an open embrace?

Before we breathe our last, do all the memories flash past?
Or does it all happen too fast?

If I could speak to you now,
I would tell you just how,
Your life was immeasurable.

Love,
Ellen
