Along with many others I listened to the funeral service of former First Lady Barbara Bush.

 

I watched her grandsons carry her casket to the hearse.

 

I watched the video feed of the funeral procession.

 

I listened to the music.

 

I sat quietly.

 

She was admired, respected and loved.

 

God gave her a gift of ninety-two years.

 

My thoughts went to May 17th, 2003.

 

Another funeral service.

 

Only two people talked about her life.

 

Her mother and her sister-in-law.

 

Another funeral procession.

 

She didn’t live long enough to have grandsons to carry her casket.

 

Instead it was her parents, her brother, family friends and a childhood nanny.

 

Her mother lowered her casket into the ground, saying –

 

“I brought her into the world. I’ll return her myself.”

 

The grief was as deep.

 

The sorrow as dark.

 

No, she didn’t have a cortege of cars with flashing lights led by an escort of bikes.

 

She wasn’t important to the nation.

 

Only to those who loved her.

 

She was eighteen.

 

A life lost before it could be fulfilled.

 

Cyber hugs and Blessings All.  May you live to see your children’s children.
