Condolence: Linda, I have only just now been informed about your mother's passing. So, I hope this message reaches you because I do not have your address.

I believe ALL of our Greatest Generation Parents have now gathered themselves together in the hereafter with this last passing, that of your mother, Jean Claire.

As each of them left us, their offspring, we became orphans one by one. That was a very strange feeling, being an orphan for the first time. Even though our parents were infirmed and slowed to an unfamiliar snail's pace, it was still hard to let go then reconcile ourselves to the fact that those "anchors" in our lives were no longer present to hold us steady.

I hope that you and your sister are well, enjoying your lives, and hopefully watching some grandchildren come along. Our parents were literally "the greatest" and our most valuable gift in Life was the steady course and positive outlook toward the future they instilled in each of us. For that I am grateful and I imagine you have considered those gifts given to you, as well. Your mom's spirit for living was always obvious to me and I am so glad that I created an opportunity to visit her while she was still in Muskogee so I could tell her how much I appreciated her and Crit, as well as all of our amazingly unique Greatest Generation Parents.
