In Loving Memory of
Katholeen Huston


TO MOMMA: HOW COULD I HAVE KNOW THAT YOU WOULD HAVE LEFT SUCH AN EMPTY SPACE IN MY HEART WHEN YOU TOOK YOUR FLIGHT FROM THIS LIFE TO THE NEXT. I FEEL I WILL NEVER BE WHOLE AGAIN. MY STRENGTH AND KNOWLEDGE AND ALL OF WHAT I AM IS BECAUSE OF YOU. YOUR EXAMPLE WAS STRONG AND LOVING, SO SUPPORTIVE AND NURTURING THROUGHOUT MY LIFE. THERE IS SUCH A BOND BETWEEN US THAT EVEN DEATH ITSELF COULD NOT BREAK IT, FOR I STILL FEEL YOU AROUND ME. SUBTLE CLUES THAT YOU ARE STILL WITH ME GREET ME EVERYDAY. SOMETIMES THESE THINGS BRING TEARS AND SOMETIMES LAUGHTER, BUT MOSTLY IT JUST WARMS MY HEART. EVEN THROUGH THE TEARS OF SADDNESS COME THE STRENGTH TO DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE. YOU SHOWED ME THROUHOUT YOUR LIFETIME WHAT IT TAKES TO KEEP PUTTING ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER EVEN WHEN THE WEIGHT IS HARD TO BEAR. I REMEMBER YOUR LAST DAYS WITH US AND I LOOKED INTO YOUR EYES AND ASKED IF YOU WERE AFRAID, AS YOU MOVED YOUR SWEET FACE SLOWLY FROM SIDE TO SIDE MY HEART LEPT INSIDE AND MY FAITH HAD NEVER BEEN STRONGER THAN IN THAT MOMENT. I KNOW I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN SOMEDAY. MOM, NOTHING COULD EVER TAKE YOUR PLACE, FOR IT IS A SPECIAL PLACE THAT I WILL TREASURE ALWAYS. I KNOW THAT YOUR SPIRIT DID NOT LEAVE ME, FOR IT IS WITH ME STILL. I WILL TRY TO LIVE BY YOUR EXAMPLE, TO BE THE WIFE, MOTHER,SISTER AND GRANDMOTHER THAT YOU TAUGHT ME HOW TO BE. TO GIVE LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ONES WHO SHARE MY LIFE. WHEN I CALL OUT TO YOU, I KNOW YOU WILL BE LISTENING AND WILL COMFORT ME WITH YOUR LOVE, FOR THE LOVE WE HAVE FOR EACH OTHER WILL GO ON FOREVER. UNTIL I SEE YOU AGAIN, I PRAY THAT GOD WILL LET HIS SWEETEST ANGEL WATCH OVER US AND GUIDE US ON THE REST OF OUR JOURNEY. I LOVE YOU MOMMA- JANE!
