Happy Mother’s Day Mom!!!
Mom loved to model, and this photo was taken of her preparing to go out on the stage at a local fashion show just 1 month prior to her death. It is symbolic in that she is dressed in a wedding styled dress, where in some cultures, it was considered that a woman would be buried in her bridal dress to be going home to be with her groom (Jesus). She also is pictured at the bottom of the staircase, as if it rises to heaven.
In memory of Connie A. Mitchell Marchell and all mothers including the entire animal kingdom, we have our lives to be thankful for their tenderness in carrying us within their womb and raising us in their lives. Mom used to say that children were a gift loaned to us from heaven!
She’s as beautiful as a delicate Peace Rose.
Her smile as radiant as the shining sun.
Her eyes sparkle as the evening stars.
Her words are always encouraging.
Her outlook is always positive.
Her heart is full of love.
As the fragrance of a rose grows more and more rich as it lives;
so does my mother’s warmth, faith and tender understanding
envelope all those who surround her.
But most of all, my mother has shown me the meaning of God in my life;
for her strength, courage and devout dedication to those she cares about
has shown me the meaning of life…LOVE.
And LOVE comes from God.
I Love Your Very, Very,Very Much, Mom!!!
Your Daughter Lori.
