It's been a whole year since Mama
went home to be with her heavenly Father.
I think a person always needs a mother.
She taught me so much about living -
to have hope and to look for the beauty in everything.
This butterfly was one of her last gifts.
(made by her great-granddaughter, Evelyn)
She loved butterflies.
They portrayed her life so well.
She now has a new and beautiful body,
free from pain and sickness.
Lord, may I live my life to the fullest -
learning, loving, growing, giving.
