I often wonder why it is that good people are taken from this earth when there's still much left to be done. Before they've had a chance to grow old, or retire and travel around the country with their spouse, or play with their grandchildren. Forty is just too young, there is so much in life that remains unfinished.
When it happens to someone I know, the only reasoning I can come up with is simply it was their time to go. I believe every person on this earth has a purpose and we are each loaned this life for a predetermined finite period of time and while we are here, it is our responsibility to make good use of it. I am once again reminded of this...
A wonderful family I care very much about has lost someone very special to them. Jeanette was a wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend to many. You couldn't help but like her, she was simply a warm, gracious and kind soul and she was an honest and genuine person. She was so very nice, always had a warm smile, a kind word....she was a genuine person with a good heart.
It's so strange how the years pass so quickly and life gets hectic and we tend to forget about the little things that seemed so insignificant long ago but suddenly at a time like this, they become so important, so endearing, so full of meaning.
