Today she would have been 81. It doesn’t seem like it has been a whole year since I saw her last. We threw her a grand surprise party, and I will have memories of it…of her, for the rest of my life. For some reason I thought she would live forever. She was 80 years young, and even sick she could run circles around me. She had a quick wit, and a come back for everything. She was hilarious too!! I will never forget the conversation about “German Shepard Cake”, or my mom having a “Blue Bird” phone. I remember a conversation she and I had just a week or so before she passed. My mom is often hard to get a hold of. I would call and leave messages and sometimes won’t hear from her until 2 weeks later. She was having the same problem. She said she was going to have someone call her and tell her that she missed her funeral. She was the best with the dry sarcastic humor.
Vegas was her playground. She could hang with the best. It seemed like she turned into the Energizer Bunny. She didn’t need a reason to go, and turned every holiday into a Vegas Holiday. If it wasn’t Vegas, it was a Morango holiday. You wouldn’t even know she was gone until she would roll into the house early in the morning.
She loved her family very much!! Though she may not have said it, her actions showed it. She left behind a legacy, 4 daughters, 26 grand children, 40 great grandchildren and one great great grandchildren. She will be missed but never forgotten. Happy Birthday Grandma Constance!!! Can’t wait to see you at the SAVIOR’S feet. Oh what a reunion that will be!!!
One Great Day
Yet we must not forget
we believe in an everlasting hope.
One that conquers all pain,
And heals all wounds.
He raised Lazarus from the dead
And himself from the tomb.
With all power he rose again,
Proclaiming his promise of return.
Oh will you be ready,
When he returns and cracks the sky,
When demons are stifled and death itself will die?
Where hurts will be forgotten
And disappointments will be no more.
Loved one’s will be reunited
Some day on that distant shore.
His promises will all be reviled,
No more sorrow, loss, no more worry or pain,
With a loud cry,
The dead in Christ will rise
And the rest will meet them in the sky.
Oh what a joyous day,
When we all see him face to face.
Yes, we have hope to see our loved one’s again,
On that earth made new time will never end.
Until then I am getting ready,
For that wonderful place beyond the sky,
When years are but an instance,
With him forever we will abide
His grace was sufficient,
His glories I see,
His mercies anew.
One day we will all be with him
Oh what a reunion that will be“When we all get to heaven ,
We will sing and shout the victory”.
