My husbands 96 year old Meme passed away quietly on Sunday in the lodge she was staying at with family at her side. She was such a wonderful example for us all. She never wanted for anything, giving selflessly all her life to anyone in need. She lived simply and happily by herself in her own little 2 story home up until the dear soul fell and broke her hip about 4-5 years ago. She never got anxious, worried, angry or too excited about anything, they say that's what kept her going so strong all these years. She loved life and her family, so this week we celebrate her life, her 96 years of pretty much perfect health, and wonderful outlook on life. May her sweetness be passed down from generation to generation and may her zest for life drip on us from the sky like a heavy dew. Rest in peace sweet Meme. Your Father has called you home.

I'm so sorry for your loss and for the rest of the family. What a wonderful example she was and legacy she leaves behind. We all need to follow the example of not giving life too much power over how we feel.
