In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson “to laugh often and much...”. and “to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here, this is to have succeeded”. You kept that quote taped on the inside of your kitchen cabinet. So many lives have breathed easier because you lived, including mine. You had the sweetest servant’s heart and you served so joyfully. I will miss your laughter; thank you for teaching me to laugh often and much. Precious mother, we are not saying goodbye, it’s just goodnight, for we will see you in the morning. All because our Savior has prepared a place for all who have believed. Thank you for the life of faith, and love of Jesus, that you lived. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants. Psalm 116:15” In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her son-in-law, Brian Taylor; brother, Glenn Wright.
