Mother was loved by so many out here in California. I still cry everyday.

A Mother's Crown
Heaven lit up with a mighty presence,
as the Angels all looked down.
Today the Lord was placing the jewels
Into my mother's crown.
He held up a golden crown,
as my darling mother looked on.
He said in His gentle voice,
I will now explain each one.'
The first gem,' He said, is a Ruby,
and it's for endurance alone,
for all the nights you waited up
for your children to come home.'
For all the nights by their bedside,
you stayed till the fever went down.
For nursing every little wound,
I add this ruby to your crown.'
An emerald, I'll place by the ruby,
for leading your child in the right way.
For teaching them the lessons,
That made them who they are today.'
For always being right there,
through all life's important events.
I give you a sapphire stone,
for the time and love you spent.'
For untying the strings that held them,
when they grew up and left home.
I give you this one for courage.'
Then the Lord added a garnet stone.
I'll place a stone of amethyst,' He said.
For all the times you spent on your knees,
when you asked if I'd take care of your children,
and then for having faith in Me.'
I have a pearl for every little sacrifice
that you made without them knowing.
For all the times you went without,
to keep them happy, healthy and growing.'
And last of all I have a diamond,
the greatest one of all,
for sharing unconditional love
whether they were big or small.'
It was your love that helped them grow
Feeling safe and happy and proud
A love so strong and pure
It could shift the darkest cloud.'
After the Lord placed the last jewel in,
He said,'Your crown is now complete,
You've earned your place in Heaven,
With your childern at your feet.'

The angels came and took you away they say, To a haven of rest far far away. I will miss you with sadness until the end, when we meet in Heaven, my sister my friend.

Cont. Lily lost her first child. He was never normal, he did not grow. He lived about ten months and at death only weighed around ten pounds. I remember the Christmas before he died. We had to rush him to Ann Arbor, to a special hospital. Vernon was out of state looking for work. Lily had come back home. I tell you this because that was one of the closest family Christmas that we ever had. It was Christmas eve. We were on the way home. It started to snow. It got worse, the car could not go farther. What to do? A sick baby and mother , a wife and five other children in a car on an express way and getting colder. Dad had to decide who to go for help. Steve went. What seemed like hours, but really only about two, help was there. Steve had found help. We still had a long way to go, but with the help of others we made it. Early Christmas morning. We were all tired and cold. We gathered in the front room, looked at the tree. And Dad said, Lets pray. Then we went to bed for a few hours Dad cooked breakfast while mom started Christmas dinner, then we just sat and talked about Jesus. The youngest ones I think recovered the trip faster and they opened their gifts. Steve ask me to go with him, we went to his room. He said he felt funny to open any gifts. I said I did too. Dad came back to us and ask what was wrong, we told him. He had us go back, mom was handing Lily her gift. It was a baby blanket. She months a later wrapped it around his still body. Her and have had many Christmas especially with our one families, but none could compare with that one. I remember the first time I went to see them in California. I flew out with Mom and Dad. What a great time. Then it was just Mom and I that went. Lily worked hard at her job. And she was very good at it. Lily had a knitting machine. She made and sold many items. She and Vernon loved to hunt. I never cared to much for wild game, but if Vernon cooked it, it was great. They always had a great garden. So much more,
