Then a bride, marrying the love of her life.
Her grandson described her as a "warm blanket you could wrap yourself in." She loved everything. She was always lifting up others and being happy for their successes.
And for as sad as an occasion as her funeral was, it was also a time of celebration that she graced us all with her presence for 82 years. I am sad for her four children who will miss her in their lives, yet I remember that this is as it should be: children should bury their parents. I have seen that role reversed too many times, and that is infinitely more devastating.
