Dearest Rodney, Trevor, Barb, Ray, Doreen, Family and Friends…..
Funerals are painful…they always are, but there are beautiful and special moments too. Sheree was such a warm person, so friendly and welcoming…always a smile and good word when greeting someone. She always made you feel so welcomed and loved.
With my heart breaking for her husband Rodney, son Trevor, her parents Barb & Ray and Sister Doreen and everyone else that was touched by her wonderful life. Kind of makes you think of your own life and mortality and what you would like to leave behind. Thinking of all the love you would want to share and give and yes receive. A situation like this makes you grateful for what you have and makes you see that your problems are unimportant in the scheme of things. Makes you want to take the time to say I love you more often to your family and friends.
It makes you wonder why God would separate a family who loved each other and had already suffered so much. And yet deep inside you try to feel hope and pray for strength for the family that she left behind. I hope that so much shared love will sustain them and help them able to continue celebrating her beautiful life and legacy. The family is blessed to share a wonderful life together and learn from her. Amongst their tears…the love they felt will keep them going.
I’m sharing this personal time with all of you, because we live in a world where we rush so often and at times forget to hug each other and tell our loved ones (friends included) just how special they are and how much we love them and how lucky we’re to have them in our lives. We should forgive more and focus on what’s important in life. Take time to relax and reflect on the wonderful things life has to offer. Enjoy your day by seeing miracles in ordinary things (like a blooming rose) or to just plain invent them along the way. Love never dies…I know that for certain.
Sheree’s special love lives on through so many. She did a lot of living and loving, in her own memorable way. Life is not measured by breaths, but in moments that take your breath away.
Love lets us see ordinary things…in an extraordinary way.
Thank you Sheree, for touching so many lives and for sharing your love with all of us.
You will truly be Missed and Never forgotten Sheree!
(Loving: Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Niece, Cousin and Friend)
Love and hope to all my family and friends.
We Love YOU Very Much!
