I felt a warm glow all over when I got into the Access bus with Lao after my “Celebration of Life.”
It was really a surprise to me that everyone would like the idea of a celebration and help me with it. Barbara Wells was my partner, and we were a good team, planning the timing and everything else.
The celebration group filled the church and seemed to act in unison many times with their singing and laughing. I was especially touched by my daughter Sylvia Smith’s tribute to the events in the past that touched her.
I think this will keep me warm for another year. And I thank The Beachcomber for letting me air it.
What next? Time will tell!
