Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Matthew 13, V.43
MaryAnn was my younger sister by a year and nine months. Only in the last few years have we picked up the fragile thread of our relationship. Somehow, our geographic distance and not having some of the more recent technology, didn't allow us to develop much of a post-childhood relationship until recently. I will always remember MaryAnn as a model homemaker. She was so talented and so pure of heart. We had many talks and had truly become friend-sisters. It is painful for me that I lost her at this time, just when we both had so much to look forward to. But, also, I know MaryAnn had a great faith, and it is in that, that I find solace. I pray that I can keep in touch with her family. She was a dedicated wife and mother and professional in ther field of dietetics.
