Her jello mold, filled with every color of the rainbow
Her smile, only half-given like Mona Lisa, appreciated all the more
Her friendship, loyal and nourishing for body and soul
Her bridge club, a weekly religious convocation
Her impeccable style and capacity for optimism
Her children, my friends
Her grands and great grands, are her loving legacy
Her patience and kindness, gifts to us all in a storm
Another loss for Great Grandma Ada. Harriet was our cousin who married Perry and constructed a bridge to this extended family’s heart. And she worked tirelessly to maintain our family’s health and happiness!
She was my dear cousin, always there, always gracious and giving. Ada’s friend who was like a sister. She lived for 92 years and died peacefully in her sleep. The Angels are trumpeting her passing today as we say goodbye and inscribe her name on the walls of our hearts.
