A week ago today Cousin Nancy passed away. She was only 49.
Her funeral was truly a celebration of her life. There was as much laughter as there were tears. People remembered Nancy’s alter ego, the Flower Phantom. For over a year people at Nancy’s church would get bouquets of flowers from the mysterious Flower Phantom. If people were sick, sad or down on their luck the Flower Phantom would send a bouquet to brighten their day. It’s just one example of how she touched people’s lives.
Nancy’s death reminds us to treasure the moment. More importantly, her life reminds us to treasure each other.
