My friends mom passed away, a few days ago. While we morn her passing, we also need to celebrate her life… All to often we deal with death by suppressing all the joy, the departed gave us. We all morn and should morn the death but I believe it is more important to celebrate the life.
Each person who enters this world departs it having touched many other lives. We may not all reach CNN status of hero but many of us are. Lucy lived a simple life raised two daughters and was a nursing assistant. An ordinary woman by many standards, she was extraordinary in the eyes of those who knew her. Lucy was a hero to her daughters,whom she loved, and beloved grandmother to their children. A loyal and trusted friend. She cared for strangers when they were ill. Who knows how much pain and suffering was eased by her presence?
I do know the world is better because she was in it, and isn’t that the legacy we all wish to leave?
Rest in peace Lucy,
