Really, when I think back about it, it was just my time to have a loss. It happens to everyone. No one is immune. It’s actually happened to me before but just not at this level.
I lost my mother. (Actually, I didn’t lose her, I know where she is.) She died from glioblastoma. Glioblastoma is a form of brain cancer. It’s the big daddy of them all.
This loss was turned into a big win this past weekend. The community she lived in got together and threw her a huge celebration. The official “Ceremony of Life” program lasted around 2 hours on Saturday where we heard a program of family, friends, preachers and community celebrate how much she lived, loved, laughed and gave. Sunday morning, the church turned their program into a cantata of songs that she loved (she was their pianist for over 35 years).
It was such a joyous weekend! A big win!
When one dies, those of us left behind usually want to list the one million accolades of the person and build a monument. I wrote a song.
If anyone of you reading this has lost a loved one, I hope you find solace in this song as well. This is where they are:
Welcome to my blog! I hope this helps you learn a little more about me and also keeps you up to date on my fun world of sports vision.
