What shall survive of us is love

Around my mother's name there was some confusion. She was known to her friends as "Betty", but when I came home in her last years and took over her bill paying, banking, I found out that her name on her official documents was Mary Elizabeth Ann, while other cards named Betty. One day I asked her, mom what name do you think God will call you? and with no hesitation she answered; "Sweetheart"

This absolute confidence that God not only knows our name, but this Good Shepard has a particular name for each of us is the greatest inheritance my mom passed onto  her family and all who knew her. It is her eternal word to us all.

Happy 90th Birthday Mom
pray for us from your eternal rest
