November 1976 – February 7, 2014
Born to two loving parents on a cold November day, and the oldest of 3 children, she always had a smile on her face. She was told daily she had a beautiful smile or people would remark that every time they saw her she was smiling.
In March 1997 she married her high school sweetheart and she loved him through military deployments, unemployment, sick children and other hard times.
On February 7, 2014 her life burned before her and on that day the girl with the bright smile died.
She will be missed for her:
- trusting nature
She had enjoyed feeling safe and knowing she was loved. She liked feeling like she was the ‘only one’ to her husband. She enjoyed feeling special and cherished.
I bury you, the woman I once knew and loved.
I celebrate your beauty and life.
Tomorrow I will wake up and find joy in the day. Although the constant smile may never return, glimpses will be seen and that will remind every one of the light that burned deep inside.
I’ll never forget the woman you were – thank you for helping to make me who I am today.
