Relay For Life hits close to home
Friday’s Jasper County Relay for Life event was pretty emotional for me. As many of you know, I lost my mother a few years ago to cancer. Seeing her luminary and those of others folks who didn’t make it, talking with survivors and other people whose lives were affected by cancer, it got to me.
It put me in a reflective mood, and I looked at something that I haven’t seen since I read it out loud. I opened up the eulogy I read and wrote for my mother’s home-going service in 2011.
I started writing that eulogy on the floor of a hospice in Kansas, three days before my mother actually passed. At this point in time, she couldn’t speak and communicated through gestures to my family and the staff. Eventually, even those stopped.
