One of the more wonderful things about being an American is meeting those who love this country.
Who believe in working hard, in giving to others and the Truth.
Who believe nothing is more important than Freedom.
One of the opportunities given by the Internet is to reach into homes with my heart and the hearts in those homes reaching back.
This opportunity has given me hope, camaraderie, laughter and joy as I and my fellow Americans joined across this great nation, in an attempt to show a better way.
Along that way I discovered one Yvonne Trew.
Although I never had the chance to meet Yvonne in person, my loss indeed, each Sunday without fail she graced my life with her presence as she added a comment and a share to whatever I deemed necessary to scribe.
Ms. Trew, ever a positive light used the Internet via her facebook page to welcome the gift of each new day with a “Happy Sunday or Monday,” “Good morning everyone” “The coffee is on” and always finished with “Hugs and Love to You.”
Other items were added along the way, always filled with the truth, and many times humor, as I personally laughed out loud at one meme she entered that stated, “Judge me when you are perfect, until then keep your mouth shut!”
Also through the Internet I met two of her grown children, Benjamin and Kathryn, both freedom loving Americans, and it was quite clear Yvonne had done a wonderful job as a mother.
It is very rare that I am at a loss for words, but they all feel inadequate in my search to show my respect, to give my love to a beloved woman who sadly passed away so I will borrow from some of her friends who said it so perfectly.
“She always made me feel like family. Sweet memories of you will keep us smiling.”
“Your sweet presence will be missed. I pray God’s comfort for all mourning your loss.”
“Coffee will never be the same again.”
“She brightened my mornings with her posts. She was just so lovely. Wish I could have met her in person.”
I wish I could have too.
To my wonderful, intelligent and at times feisty American Sister I say thank you, I miss you and congratulations to a life well lived.
I’ll see you on the other side.
In the meantime,
“Happy Sunday and Good morning everyone, the coffee is on.”
“Hugs and Love to you.”
