At Sunset..... Do you know the hour, when the sun goes down is a beautiful time of day.  When your task is done, and the shadows fall, and your worries are laid away.   


Its just as true that the close of life can a beautiful sunset. Every task well done, let the shadows fall, there's no fear of eternity. 


My mom was the most gentle and caring person I have ever known. I will miss her the rest of my life. 

To my cousins, your families, and the Hunt family,


I wish I could have been with you today in person but was grateful to be able to join on-line.


My thoughts are with you all.  I have many fond memories of Aunt Janet and of the times we all spent together over the years.


I will miss her.


With Love, 


Mary
