She seems like the kind of lady I wold have loved to meet.

My father has a similar story to yours – child of a divorce in the 50′s. Secrets abound and the children don’t always share those secrets with the family until it’s far too late. Or maybe that’s just a southern thing….

I know what you mean about that “orphaned” feeling – it kind of hits you out of the blue sometimes, even a ways down the road. I am lucky enough to still have both my parents, but all of my grandparents are gone now, and I miss their humor and wisdom. It is a strange feeling indeed to have the torch passed from one generation to the next. You and your family will be in my thoughts.

I lost three of my four grandparents last year. I’m thinking of you this season. That orphaned feeling lasts for a while.

Thinking of you.

Thank you for sharing a piece of your family’s history and inspiring us in such a heartfelt way. Just read this post to my husband tonight. Such a touching story.

Daisy is a great example that unconditional love and dedication to ones we love has no limits and can impact generations to come. What a gift she has been to so many.

Sending a prayer your way.

Oh Gabs. Loved your Dad. He was remarkable, which makes me believe he came from remarkable stock. Just look at you!

I am so sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers are abundant in your behalf…. you have ALWAYS done so much good to those you touch. (it’s just on a much bigger scale, now…)

So, did you hear? Snow on Christmas Eve in St. George… It was a Christmas miracle. Beautiful and fantastic. Miss you. k

Isn’t it amazing to look back on the lives of those that have come before us and see the strong, diligent, stalwart examples as they came through so many tough and trying things? It helps me remember to be strong.
