Celebration of Life
I attended a celebration of life yesterday for Joan Francis. I didn't know Joan very well except through her daughter Rae who is a friend of my daughter. I learned a lot about this beautiful person during this exercise of love as her family celebrated her life and her accomplishments and her victory in Jesus! I listened in awe at the words of her husband along with the 800-900 others present at the service. This man truly loved this woman. She lived out the Proverbs 31 description for a woman. I hope that when my time comes such words are evoked on my behalf. From this day forth, I will strive to become a better person, wife, mother and daughter and most of all woman of God. R.I.P. Joan Francis. God bless you, Francis Family.
