Four Years Later


Jasper Speaks:

Today is the fourth anniversary of my mother's death. My heart is heavy today. I just attended the funeral of a loving saint from our church as well. I kept thinking throughout the service that  death is a natural part of life. That doesn't make it better really. Still, I know my mother is in Heaven and that her years of pain are gone. The hole she left behind is deep and can never be filled.  Maybe some of this is harder because today is the day my dad is being moves to a new facility as his Alzheimer's gets worse. Hard times makes me miss Mom more. I  am just thankful for the 38 years of my life I got to share with her.She was an amazing woman and the influence she had on my life continues on.
