Sister. Wife. Mother, Sister-In Law. Aunt. Grand mother, Great Grand Mother Friend. Add these cavalcades and it can summed up in one word, Ellen The newest angel, walked into Heaven with her children at her side. Barbara and Sharon. What a joy she must had felt, seeing them again! And her brothers too, Fred and Albert! Without tears of sorrow but tears of happiness, for they will tell her, "We want to introduce you to our Lord Jesus"! He welcomes her with open hands and seeing Him, she will be happy to see him face to face. You showed me perseverance and from set-backs there will be in due time happiness once again. Your wit, your charm and yes, even your humility and wisdom you blessed me in returning back to God, I am proud being called, "Born Again"! I remember our last chat as I was recovering from my stroke, you said: "Keep Climbing" We all endure pains and disappointments. But we all will keep climbing! When we feel we are at the end of our rope, we, keep climbing! Hand over hand, steady up the rope of life disappointments we may falter but keep climbing! When it is our time and we be at the end of the rope we did not stop from climbing. It is our Lord, out stretched his hand to pull us up, and climb over threshold into Heaven. Our faith is strong we never stopped from keeping us from climbing! So my advice to you, whenever you feel setbacks make you feel your loosing your grip. Do not be afraid, Look above your next grasp of the rope, He is there to give you encouragement and the sin of doubt is behind you! So keep climbing! Keep climbing"! I Love You Aunt Ellen.
