Seeing the best- during the worst

Today was the funeral for my friend Holly.  She will be missed.  It was a wonderful day and I enjoyed watching others provide service.  The wonderful group of professionals at Howe Mortuary.  The awesome luncheon that was provided by so many volunteers.  Amazing musical abilities providing peace and comfort.  The entire chapel full of people who took time to pay their respects and celebrate Holly's life.  There was tears, and laughter, hugs and hands held tightly as friends and family leaned on each other during difficult times.  

I love the quote from Elizabeth Kibler-Ross: 

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."

Today the light from within so many, was shining through dark times.  How grateful I am to have witnessed another example of love, support and fellowship.  How honored to be among those who emulate the life of the Savior Jesus Christ in their daily actions.  

Thank you Holly, for allowing the heavens to part for a brief moment, and let us get a glimpse of eternity.  I want to close today's blog with the closing from Holly's email....


"And in the end, the love you take, 
is equal to the love you make!"

Tootles, Holly! 
Till we meet again.................
