You know that house you can always go to where you never had to wonder if you were welcomed or not? You know, that person who owned the house, who never close their doors, who welcomed you with loving open arms? That was my aunt Virgie. She was that person, that was her home. We grieve the loss of her, because we miss her, because she was a wonderful person. She represented home, a place to breathe, a place where you always belonged. We sorrow, because she was a person that we love. We grieve because we will miss her, not because we're falling into despair and not because we don't know where she is, she is with the Lord. She was a woman who believed in and lived her life as if Jesus were really her friend, someone that she could talk to whenever she needed him. It was He who carried her in her last moments. But we mourn and we grieve for her because we're going to miss every warm hug, every smile, we're going to miss all the good food, we're going to miss how she made us feel like we belonged. She was truly a woman of both grace and beauty and she exemplified Christ with her life. Rest well Aunt Virgie.
