Im about to talk about a blessing that came to me on June 4th 1993. Almost from the start I knew she was different and anything but ordinary and that made me love her ever more intensely than the rapid beating of a healthy human heart. She is a gift to this world and the muse that guides Heavens inspiration. She came to me one day with broken wings and a strong spirit. She has carried me through desolate highways of angry hearts and torn happiness, but through it all we shined together. Through it all I always owned her smile, as she captured mine. The days when she was feeling particularly feisty we both cut-up like rock stars, the apple toss (sauce) would be everywhere and she loved every minute of it.
There are so many things I will miss about her; just everything.
If you met her once you were in love; smitten-and youd never forget that face (perfect)!
Life will never go on as it should but we will all remember that face and that coveted toy she always kept in that left hand like it was gold, never letting go except to throw it for me to chase. I want her back...that would stop the hemorrhaging.
She has touched so many lives, but she was there for me, as I was for her.
Services will be held on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at noon at Kelso-Cornelius Funeral Home located at 725 Norland Ave. in Chambersburg, PA with Pastors Dave Roberts and George Jones officiating.
