When I Must Leave You

When I must leave you for a little while - Please do not grieve and shed wild tears and hug your sorrow to you through the years, but start out bravely with a gallant smile and for my sake and in my name live on and do all  the things the same. Feed not your loneliness in comfort and cheer on empty days.

But fill each waking hour in useful ways. Reach out your hand and I in turn will comfort you and hole you near; and never, never be afraid to die, for I am waiting for you in the sky!

Growing Up

Shared by Jackie Seidel on September 7, 2009

My mother Rita was born to Klara Dufferain on August 17, 1945. Klara was 40 years old when Mom was born. Klara having been a Nun kept things on the up and up! Mom has an adventerous spirit and would venture outside of what her Mother wanted her to do!

It's that adventerous spirit that made Mom who she became. Mom was always full of life and that showed in everything she did. The way she would befriend people and help them out was just amazing! Mom had so much love for life and people. Mom is my Mother and Friend and I miss her dearly!
