For Mimi

Grandma, Mimi, Nana, Grammie,
that steady light which always waits,
always listens,
always hopes,
always loves.

As we grow in strength
she weakens,
as we blossom into beauty
she fades,
as we struggle in this world
she journeys toward the next.

Out of hardship, resolve and joy
she fashions a shining light,
a legacy of love,
and gifts it to all of us.

Remember this, for it is true
and brings great comfort:

Love is stronger than death.
Love wins. 

Amen. Alleluia!
