|Yellow was her favorite color|
How about that?
My sweet William's mother slipped off the corruptable for the incorruptable, today. Death can be a long, slow, sticky ordeal. But she's free now. Free to be the vivacious person she was in years' past. She was a godly woman. A devoted daughter, faithful wife, loving mother, doting grandmother, steadfast friend, a talented artist and zealous servant of Christ. Will and I sat vigil these past two days and, as with most men, it was difficult for him to sit... with nothing to be done. He read Phillippians and the gospel of John to her- she always loved it when he would read to her. He sang to her. He reassured her that it was alright, telling her often that he loved her, and that he was right there with her. How difficult to watch the man you love loose something so precious to him. He wept over her... and yet, while he felt such loss, he would smile and state loudly- as only he can- how wonderful she must be feeling at this very moment. Now, on to all the stupid little details that need attending to. Finally, something for him to do. His sister is flying in tonight and I'm sure she will work out all the artistic nuances and leave him to the practical. And maybe some sleep.
