Gratefulness for Mom

Memorial for Doug’s Mom

Some things you just don’t plan for, but they are very important, and they sort of catch you off-guard. 

While there were plenty of warning signs, we still didn’t expect things to move so quickly. In early February, Doug’s mother entered eternity. We planned to arrive and have some time, but the day before we landed, she passed away. 

We celebrated her life well with many family members and friends sharing memories. Doug planned and officiated the memorial — no easy task when its you mother! All that allowed the grief to be real, and how deep the gratitude was for mom. We also had some great times with extended family reminiscing about her life.  God is good and we are grateful for the time we had with her.
