A candle was lit in memory of Nancy Albea

We are gathered here today in the memory of my mother, Nancy, so that together we may acknowledge and share both our joy in the gift that her life was to us, and the pain that her passing brings.
In sharing the joy and the pain together today, may we lessen the pain and remember more clearly the joy.

My mother had a gentle heart and a kind spirit. She didn't have much as far as earthly possessions but she gave of herself through quality time spent with me. I remember fondly her teaching me how to play solitaire, picking four leaf cloves and helping me with my homework. She had a chihuahua, She loved this dog, she would carry her in her pocket book everywhere. Mom also loved her plants and flowers, even though she didn't have a green thumb!!

Over the last few years I was able to reconnect with her through phone calls, texts and her love of emoji's. She would ask for pictures of me and my Pepsi truck..all the time. She recently sent me this Christmas card that said "Busy lives and hectic days have not been on our side. But that can't change the family ties or heartfelt love and pride.

This card reminds me that in times of hardship, being able to reflect on the good memories, makes it all worth it. A verse I would like to share with you from Ecclesiastes:

To everything there is a season, a time for every
matter under heaven; a time to be born,
and a time to die; a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away.

This was my speech. I was hoping to read it today
