Charles & Lenore Bleadon

We hardly knew Reggie and yet were drawn to her energy and love of life. Both Lenore and myself barely knew Reggie and feel we will miss her for our lifetimes.

John Jacobsen and Jeanie Stahl

An impressive life, lovingly presented. While I did not know your mother, it is clear how her values are reflected down a generation. When both parents are gone, we realize that their afterlife is most tangibly present in how their children live their lives and in our values and memories. I know I feel a warm glow when I find myself doing something as my Mom or Dad would have done it, or seeing some thread in the tapestry of history play out as they predicted.

And of course, our parents also live on in our memories, as long as we keep recalling them. Sort of like keeping the flowers fresh at the cemetery. My mother died after my father, at home of pancreatic cancer at 82, after months of rotating siblings that had one of us there at all times. So I have some inkling of what you are going through. Such a last parent's death is not a moment for a son, but a transition over many months,. And, I suspect it is still underway as the details of her life and legacies shift from being a living, changing presence in your life, into an historic mental framework in your mind, full of many rooms, both dark and sunny. The transition is only done when all rooms have been lit up and aired out.
