Many years ago I was born into a home with much love and happiness.
A joyful childhood was interrupted, and almost ended, by a dreaded disease.
The love and faith, care and goodness, of family and friends led me beyond myself and my own disease into a life that so enjoyed loving and caring for others.
From the illness, dreams have been borne and homes have been built for children who remind me so much of myself in years gone by.
There is still much to do with the dreams that remain for all you who still care.
For so long you prayed for me.
Now I am with the Lord and am praying for you.
May you continue the dream you first taught me.
Your love and healing, your faith and your care was a gift to me.
Now it is your legacy to share.
Remember me in the smiles of my children, the laughter of friends, the prayers at the altar, the rainbows that never end.
