Life goes so quickly...I remember first meeting her when I was in nursing school and it seems like yesterday. She was always kind to me and I appreciated how nice she was. It's easy to set someone on a pedestal after they are gone but she was quite ill for the last few years and yet that smile seldom left her face.
One of the things that brought the biggest smile to her face was the love of family. She would share pictures that she got in the mail from her children of the great-grands. She loved hearing stories about the new ones in our family and would always finish them with "Isn't that something?"
The circle of life seems not to stop even in the seconds that make your heart stop for a while.
