An Extraordinary Woman

To my sister Marcie You were the epitome of a true Southern lady. Your hospitality reigned warm and generous as a summer's day, guiding you the consummate hostess. You played life's roles with grace and compassion. Strength and dignity kept you anchored and confidence validated your presence. You embraced family and friends in a circle of love giving hugs magically lifting spirits with your smile binding us to you for a lifetime. The gray mist of illness vanishes softening your features in blessed peace. In the distance a church bell tolls, golden music transports your soul to heaven. Tears stain my face.
