I miss Mama’s dressing at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I miss her laugh that started at her toes and zoomed all the way up to her eyes. I miss her calm assurance and fiery attitude. I miss the glow on her face when she looked at my daddy. I miss the phone calls during a Braves game or when two snowflakes fell. I miss her utter, unashamed love of Jesus. But most of all, I miss her hugs.

I miss Maureen’s determination and her independent spirit. I miss her sense of style and rhythm (even though she was confined to a wheelchair). I miss her expressive blue/gray eyes that held mine a little longer than usual the last time I saw her. I miss her artistic talent that ended before she could develop it fully. I miss her love of animals and her passion for adventure and just plain fun. I miss her laugh. But most of all, I miss her hugs.

This is a beautiful remembrance. Perhaps holidays are there to remind us.

How well you have expressed your relationship with these two dear people. It makes me think that love surpasses loss, like Paul said, it is greater than death, and it illuminates us if we let it.

May I add to your hugs today.

What a beautiful testimony, Lonnye Sue.
It's hard to express whet I want to say right now.
