ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct.3

Again. It has happened again. Another beautiful member has died. This woman was gentle, strong,quiet, outspoken with her views,charming and loving. She exuded a quietness that can only come when you have a sense of confidence and self respect. I knew her on several different levels. A member of our Congregation who went out of her way on Friday nights to ask about her "boy friend" and give him a hug at services. I knew her in a group of women who met once a month to discuss national issues. She always had her say. Quietly. I knew that she was active in the Book Club and there will be a void there. I knew that she did Hospice calls. I know that she was dignified but enjoyed a laugh. I know that she loved her family. It will be awhile before we can get used to her not being here. So we lose another gem. Rest in Peace ,dear. You earned it.
