One year ago, today, your life on this earth ended. One minute you were here and the next you were not. At the age of 40 no one expects to die, suddenly, without any warning.
We, as parents, expect our children to outlive us and continue to carry on with their lives until THEIR old age. That was not GOD'S Plan. Only He, in His great wisdom, knows why your life here was a short one. Although your life was brief, it was filled with many accomplishments. With Peninsula Horse Show and 4H you showed your horses Nunya first and then Laura and won trophies, ribbons and championships. As a sophomore in high school you played “Lili” in the play “Carnival”. You and your dad got your masters in scuba diving, which you did locally and in the Bahamas and Florida. In later years you worked with stained glass and made many beautiful objects and jewelry. You were proud and happy to become an Emergency Medical Technician. Over the years you enjoyed Karate and Yoga. Then you joined a gun club and did shooting competition. Kayaking was another activity that you did most recently.
You worked at the Animal Rescue Foundation in Milledgeville, Georgia. Animals of all kinds: dogs, cats, horses, pet rabbit, gerbils and (feeding the humming birds) were your passion. You continued to bring animals into your life and were devoted to them all. You were visiting Florida and wrote that you were snorkeling with the manatees and petted the friendly giants which was both humbling and exciting. What a fine gentle hearted woman you were. Your showed love and respect for animals
Where did the years go? One day you were playing dress up and the next day you were off to college. In the KJV Bible Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
My prayer is that we did train you in God's way and you never forgot.
Our lives will never be the same without you
Our love to you always my darling daughter,
