A Sweet Bride Named Laura

Long ago Mama Holli
was a babysitter
to 
a sweet baby girl
named
Laura
and
a sweet baby boy 
named
David
Proud parents of these two sweet children
are
 Jan and Michael.

I became part of their family.
They watched me grow, get married
and have babies of my own.

Then tragically
Jan's life was taken. 
To say we were devastated would
not even start to describe our loss.

We continue on to honor her legacy.
To honor her love for us.
To live our life to the fullest
so that we may be with her again in heaven.

My Hubby and I went to Panama
to witness the beautiful union 
of
Laura and Aaron!
It 
was
joyful
lovely
happy
exciting
peaceful
blessed
emotional
intimate
and
adventurous

We all felt Jan's presence
as we celebrated 
love
and
life

Congratulations
Laura & Aaron
We Love You!




Oh how I miss you 
my sweet sweet Jan!
I will forever be blessed
because of your 
unconditional love for me.
In my heart you will live
until I see you again.
