Privileged, beyond measure
My heart broke as we sat and her 11 year old son's sobs could be heard through the 100' & 100's & 100's of guests present. Then rejoiced as her 8 year old daughter got up and danced, then later sang with her grade 3 class songs about heaven. Family, long time friends & students spoke of a life well lived, a heart that loved God above all and her family next to none. Of a woman who loved words, music and the arts but most of all loved to share a good meal and laugh with friends. Privileged were those who knew her face to face, as well as I who have known her from afar. Rest in peace Sandy. May you enjoy many days of dancing and singing and much good food, free of pain, free of illness free to be you! We know you are there getting the party ready for that day we are all there to enjoy it with you.
