Marjorie

Today I went to a funeral of a dear old lady. She was the Mother of a friend of ours and lived her life true to her Christian beliefs, she radiated her love for her Lord and everyone loved her. The church was full, which for a lady of 93 is amazing, she had the gift of encouragement and used it to the full. You never heard her say a bad word about anyone and she always put the positive side to the fore, we met her at numerous family occasions that our friend has had and she was always a pleasure to talk to. Even as she was dying and in pain she was more concerned about other patients around her than herself her family told us, which I can well believe. Her faith remained strong right to the end.
I have met so many older people who have become bitter and not been able to see the brighter side of life but Marjorie was a good role model, if I can grow old with as much grace, humility, willingness to serve others and faith as her I will be happy!

She sounds like a wonderful person to have known and you must feel blessed to have been part of her life.
She sounds like a good role model for us all.
