Her Journey’s Just Begun ~ By Author Unknown
Don’t think of her as gone away
her journey’s just begun…
Life holds so many facets,
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today,
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost
and she was loved so much.
Missing you always, remembering you forever.
Joanne, Don, Luke & Nicole
Babcia was our matriarch, always there to help, could be counted on in the middle of the night when the kids were sick, or when I was away and Barbara needed a break. She respected all human beings and provided a role model for us to emulate. Nat loved to sew and imparted those skills to her children, cook (sometime a little too much), cut her own grass, trim the trees, shovel and provide all of us with a gift that keeps on giving - the infamous "ROSE OF SHARON". Its an awesome reminder of her, to pick seedlings out of the grass even in areas of the yard that were no where near those flowers. They bloomed all August, which is the month of her birth, so she always had flowers on her birthday.
The house on Sir Williams Lane was the reason why we put in a pool after we built our house. We had so many weekends in, and by the pool and Sunday brunches where we got to talk (loudly) about all manners of worldly events. It was our gathering place for family after the children left the nest. Natalia would cut up a slab of striploin and we would fire up the barbecue. Lots of food, great conversation and exercise. I miss those days, but have tried to keep that tradition alive with my crew. Our diets may have changed but the sentiment remains.
Babcia we will miss you but have so many great memories you will never be forgotten. You are never alone as you are in our hearts and on our minds.
