  4. Another one-of-a kind lady. She lived her life to-the-fullest. I shall never forget her for many-reasons but at-the-top of-the-list was her-comment when she heard Tom Sheldon and I were marrying; she said to my-mother “Bachelors make the best-daddys and he will be at the top-of-a list.” He was indeed and Beth will vouch for that. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-other are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent I can tell you, R. D. from almost 19-years of widowhood. My how time has flown, 62-years and I remember that as-if-it were yesterday. Travel the new-pathway our Lord has for you as we all have our individual one as there are no-pathways. Cling tightly to His unchanging-and-unfailing hand, He won’t leave you nor forsake you but carry you when you just cannot go-it alone. God bless each and every one.
