Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord!
Her legacy was love.
It was charity.
At the wake at Wasik Funeral Home in Warren, MI., a crowd shared how Kathy touched their lives personally.
"She always was right there with the person she was talking with."
"I knew she was a counselor who cared."
"Amid problems, she was happy, smiling."
"She knew how to have fun."
"She shook the tambourines with confidence at this shop to attract shoppers."
"Kathy loved us."
At the lunch after the burial, people continued to share Kathy's legacy.
No U-hauls, I thought, as each spoke. Nothing goes with us as we pass over.
Nothing. Only one's soul.
Nope, just the charity we're called to be by the Creator.
I better get with the program, no?
Eternal rest grant unto Kathy, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.
And, may we strive to emulate her virtues, strengths and more.
