Dearest Beverly and Claire,
Your entry on Ginger's birthday so impacted me that I was speechless yesterday. I'm just treasuring all these memories in my heart.
They continue to impact me even though your mom and dad are absent from the body and present with the Lord, because what they left us was everlasting wisdom and outlook on life that I continue to apply to new situations in my life. They will live on in all of us who were so blessed to be able to call them our dear friends.
I told Ginger after the last lesson she taught at our Esther circle, not too many years ago, that her teaching style was so colorful and free flowing. Instead of following an outline, It was as if she had a treasure chest in front of her that she dug her arms deep into pulling out jewels that she shared with each one of us in the room. It was always such a treat to be with her no matter what we were doing. I always left her feeling so enriched.
So many times I've had to stop myself from calling or thinking I'll drive over to see her. I miss her terribly but relish the thought of her being with the Lord.
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives and providing an opportunity to express our feelings as well. We continue to pray for you and your families. Much love, Suzette
