Taking a step back

Today was the funeral for my sister-in-law's mother. She passed away suddenly and far too early from a brain aneurysm. I was reminded today about the shortness of life, and also the importance of what we do with it. I was reminded what a great responsibility it is to be a mother and to teach and raise my children. I was reminded that it's never wrong to tell your children and your companion that you love them, and to do it often.

I knew Diane Barrus only a short while, but it is evident that she has left a legacy of love and service for her family and those who loved her. We love you Megan, and are so very sorry for the loss of your mother, your friend.
