In Loving Memory of
Evelyn Mae goodenough-ward


I tried to be strong for you momma so you wouldn't feel afraid about going to live with Jesus, but in my heart,I was afraid of living here without you. I didn't want to know what life would feel like to live without you in this world with me. I didn't want to know what it would feel like to walk through malls, and grocery stores alone. I didn't want to know the feeling of eating without you in the resturants during lunchtime. I didn't want to know what it felt like to realize I couldn't call you anymore. i didn't want to know what it would feel like to lose a best friend in this life again. I didn't want to know what it would feel like to stand alone at family gatherings. I didn't want to know what it felt like to hear the words I AM SORRY ABOUT YOUR MOTHER. I didn't want to know what it would feel like to see my dad suffer. I didn't want to know what it would feel like when it hurt too much to look at your picture. I didn't want to know what it would feel like to mention your name or someone would cry. I NEVER wanted to know what it would feel like to see a mother and daughter walking together in their old age. i never wanted to know what it would feel like to see a husband and wife walking together in their old age. I never wanted to know what it would feel like to give away your things. I never wanted to know what it felt like to tell my baby daughter about her gramma by holding up a picture. i never wanted to know what it would feel like when my children would tell me that they miss Gramma. I never wanted to know what it would feel like to say goodbye for a lifetime. I never wanted to know what it felt like when it was you i had to say goodbye to.

I shall always love you. Your daughter, Carlene
