These are the Women we come from..Women with backbone, keepers of the flame. With a spirit that even hard times couldn't tame.

 The women of our family passed these things to us..Grace, dignity,determination, spirit, intelligence,charm,stubbornness,conviction,boldness, sense of humor, independence,courage,spunk,faith and heart. And so much more.

Josh Groban has a song that expresses exactly why the women in our family are strong. "You Raised Me Up"

When I am down and Oh my soul so weary. When troubles come and my heart burdened be.Then I am still and wait here in the silence. Until you come and sit a while with me. You raised me up so I can stand on mountains. You raised me up to walk on stormy seas. I am strong when I am on your shoulders. You raised me up to all that I can be. You raised me up...To More than I can be.

We have many strong Women and Men in our family who"Raised Us Up and taught us to be Strong with Soft Edges.

They continue to stay close today so that we may stand on their shoulders as we watch our Sister, Peggy...Disappear!

Mary Louise this is a beautiful entry. "You Raise Me Up" was one of Judy's favorite songs. She made a cd she titled "My Cancer Journey" and she included this song. When her cancer returned she intended to make another cd for us, sadly she was unable to do so. I shed my tears On The Wings Of An Angel.
