18 years old, she married the love of her life.
66 years later, he says goodbye.
Family gathered near.
4 generations, together.
Like a nest, their family has been
a nurturing home,
a shelter for returning,
an anchor in storms,
a compass in confusion,
a home built on a strong Foundation.
Now, family is a place for mourning, together.
Safe in that space, they grieve as one.
She is safe too, in a heavenly home
that must resemble the home that they built
through 66 years of hard life and love.
