A spark began the day you were born
With each day, this spark grew brighter and stronger
One day love was found
These two sparks combined and became a fire…
The strongest fire.
From this fire, new sparks arose
these sparks burn brightly because of you.
Your fire will never be extinguished.
Because you are the ember that sparks the flames
This is your legacy
Your lasting promise
When your spark becomes a star, shining in the Heavens above…
You’ll look down and see
that the brightest fires on earth..
are those that burn
because of you.
I wrote this for Genny, my mother in law, about 3 months before she passed away.
It isn’t perfect… but it’s true.
I wanted her to know she has touched us, me and will live on forever because of the men she raised, and the love she spread.
Two years ago tomorrow, November 21st. She passed away.
She left her house on Nov 18th, 2005 to attend Princess’ 2nd birthday party. It was the last time she left her house.
Monday, November 21st.. she never regained consciousness. It was a long battle with many pains and illnesses.
She waited and gave us a blessing.
Every single solitary member of her family made it to the house to say goodbye and was in the room with her when she passed.
It was peaceful, it was quiet and it was a passing filled with love.
She gave me the most amazing gift in my life. My husband and in turn my children.
For this, I will always remain grateful to my “other mother”.
God Bless you Genny.
