Her Presence Is Still Felt Among Us

Darlene c. Concord, New Hampshire

A stay at home, devoted, loyal wife of nearly 40 years and mother of 6. Planning to finally reach retirement years, kicking back and enjoying life. She was diagnosed suddenly with the fatal, Lou Gerhig's disease. With not many months to live, she held strong yet did not want to be a burden upon her family. She held her head high and passed after all 6 kids could be present to say goodbye. Her presence is still felt amongst us, yet none of us will ever be the same without her. Her strength was beyond measure, her love beyond words. She took one for the team and we now stand together to honor her. Thanks for all you did for us Mom. Miss you.
