Virginia Chapman — Giving Love Without Having A Reason   5 comments

Virginia's 85th BirthdayVirginia Chapman On 85th Birthday (June, 2009) May she rest in peace! — Image by kenne

What made Virginia special

was understanding that love

is something you give

without having a reason —

maybe that’s what makes

some women so special.

With Virginia’s passing, the family and friends will not be celebrating her 90th birthday this June, at least not as planned. In lieu of our not being able to share her 90th birthday celebration, I share a video of her 85th birthday party celebration.

A Mother’s Love Returned, Laboring In Gratitude   11 comments

It was just less than three weeks ago that Joy was in southern California planning her mother’s 90th birthday celebration with sisters, Jody and Jeri. This past Tuesday she returned, this time to her mother’s death-bed. This afternoon Virginia pasted away peacefully. She is survived by her eight children, many grand and great-grandchildren.

The only thing greater

than a mother’s

undying love

is the combine love

returned to her

by those she loves,

laboring in their

song of gratitude.
