There's a Celebration in Heaven

The bells are ringing, the angels are singing and those greeting LouLou in heaven are no doubt a loud bunch. We celebrate a life well-lived.

"We can only be said to be truly alive in those moments when our hearts are concious of our treasures." ~Thornton Wilder

She lives on in 3 children, 9 granchildren, 27 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. I can not find the words to describe the rich treasure she leaves for all who knew her. She invested her life in the truly important things. My heart is full.

Hallelujah, LuLu is HOME!!!

I know you are thrilled and yet already mising her. I am teary-eyed and yet joyful myself.

Praying the Peace of God for you and your entire family.

So sorry for YOUR loss, but so happy for Heaven's gain.

Interestingly, my grandfather died during Thanksgiving week several years ago. It's a bittersweet time, but reminds me to be so grateful for the heritage he left for all of us.

I have such mixed emotions as I read this as I'm sure you do too. I'm smiling but with tears in my eyes for you. She is with Jesus, and that is the most wonderful place to be. But I am so sorry for the temporary loss to you and your family. How great that it is only temporary.

Much love to you!
