~ A Celebration of Life ~
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Life is a journey unknown, we had little knowledge that her death was so near. She fought the fight, she kept the faith, and now she has gone home to God.
