My dear Mother-in-law,
It is sad to write this…. The news was unexpected, unbelievable, and absolutely unwanted. How does one begin to say goodbye? It is hard to believe you are gone.
Thanks for the many precious memories, your quiet but steady support, your immense love for your grandchildren- how you always remembered their birthdays and Christmas, and would always send presents. Family was everything to you…. You drew your comfort and strength from it and daily reminded us of the importance of family.
We would miss you…. your compassion and generosity.
Your gentility and strength.
Your passion, dedication and commitment to your work, research, and writings.
Your dignity and resilience in the face of adversity.
Your unshakeable faith in Jesus.
We thank God for the life you lived and your contributions to family, friends, and the society. You were an inspiration, and it was an honor to have known you.
May the Light of God guide you home. Sleep well Mother.
