(Theresa Danna 8-28-14 Eulogy)

Thank you all for coming today! I wanted to start off with a something funny for my mother, as she would have wanted it that way..
You see Theresa Danna loved jokes and laughter. She would have demanded that we laugh today. Even though it is so hard to find laughter and joy when you lose someone so special from the world.
So we will laugh and we will cry, because we lost a beautiful soul, a sister ,a grandmother, a daughter, a mother and a friend!
This is a very hard day for me…the hardest!
I want us to truly remember and embrace who Theresa Danna – my mother was. Not the illness that took her life!
My mother had in my opinion a heart too big for this world. I always like to equate it to the guy from “The Green Mile”. In that movie, the main character would literally take the pain right out of others when he would touch them and he would take it on for them himself. Until all of the pain and suffering that he endured was just too much for his heart and soul to take! So in the end he had to go to a bigger and better place where he could do more! This was heaven.

My mother was the preverbal Green Mile! She loved and cared about other so much that she would literally take on their pain and worries. She took care of everyone around her and absolutely wanted to take their pain away. “Her heart was just too big for this world as well”
I can remember being just a little boy without a father…a momma's boy! She would always say to me, don't worry Claytonian, I am the mother and the Father! She really was though!
I would quite often wake up on school days and tell her that I didn't want to go to school. I wanted to be with her and stay close to her. I was very sensitive and she understood that. Not once though did she ever question me or make me feel bad about it. She would just say alright and call into my school to let them know that I would not be in that day…eventually she ran out of excuses, but she always had my back! Then we get lunch or would hang out and watch movies together. We loved watching sappy movies, even though I could never get her to sit down for more than 10 minutes at a time…it was our little escape from reality and our escape from life! These memories I will keep forever with me locked away.
I also will never forget the times that my sister Leah and I would have with her. Driving in her car playing loud music with the sun beaming in our faces! My mom and Leah would always try to get me to harmonize with them on songs…I could never figure it out and to this day I still have not been able to. Just ask my wife Faith! ? (“The Trace Amigos”) she would call us, and we loved it.
Lastly I will always remember all of my mother's beauty and talents that she possessed. A lot of time when Leah and I were kids, we had trouble sleeping at night…so naturally we would meander over to our moms room and try to snuggle up next to her in bed. Not only would she always let us in no matter how tired she was, she would grab her little guitar and play us a song. She would usually play us (Cowgirl in the Sand) by Neil Young. Her beautiful voice, her beautiful spirit, before we knew it we were fast asleep in the comfort and the warmth of our moms bed and gentle spirit!
My mom was the most beautiful, coolest, most caring and sensitive person I will ever know! She would literally give you the shirt off her back…even if it was her last one. Or her last dollar, even if it meant her being broke. She would give you anything if it helped you out.
Mom had a genius IQ, she was a poet, a songwriter, a Supermodel, and one of the top realistate agents in the country in her prime! Most importantly – she was my mother and no matter what has happened in this life. I would not trade it, or take it back for anything in the world. I cannot wait to see her again in Heaven seated at the right hand of God!

I know this for a fact because the morning before she passed, I had what I thought was a lucid dream…I know now that it was not…at all. I dreamt that I went back to where she was staying at the hospice and I walked into the room and she was beautiful…not just any beautiful, but the most beautiful angelic thing I had ever seen! I looked at her and said mom, oh my gosh you are ok, she was able to talk and we embraced like never before. I looked at her and said mom I love you so much and I can believe you are better! She grabbed me and said Clayton I have heard you tell me every time how much you love me and it hurt me so bad that I couldn't respond to you! I have been crying inside because I couldn't – but I heard you and love you so much Clayton. She said, I am ok and I am ready to go now. Everything is going to be ok. I love you!!!
I woke up shortly after that at around 6:30am…I was so happy because at first I thought she was better and then I came to my census and realized it was a dream, so I balled so hard because it wasn't real. I then tried to go back to sleep in order to see her again. When I woke up I drove back to the hospice to see her as fast as I could. When I got there my aunt Mary informed me that she had passed at 10:47am about 20 minutes before I got there.

At that point - I realized that I had not had a dream…this was real and she cared so much about me and knew that she needed to make a stop to let me know that she was ready and that she loved me before God led her hand into heaven! She wanted to make sure that I was ok…like always. It was divine and the most beautiful experience that I have and will ever have. God and Heaven are so real and I am 100% positive that she is there watching over us!


Thank you all for being here today!
