Alice Mary 6th Anniversary
It has been 6 years since she left us. The pain may have faded but her memories still remain vividly in our hearts and minds. Whenever we are gathered as a family, we never fail to talk about her. This gives us great courage and inspiration to continue doing right in whatever we do.
Joseph P. Kenedy said, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”. Mdm Alice would have gone through some extremely difficult times as a homemaker keeping the family together. But being a woman of steel, it was the toughness in her that made her go on to achieve the impossible.
Whenever we visit her grave to place flowers and light candles, it is not just a ritual to honour her but an expression of her place deep in our hearts. It is also gives as an opportunity to reflect on the wonderful time we had with her here on earth.
Mother Alice may be gone but she has left us a great legacy, a legacy of hard work, discipline and compassion that is extremely difficult to follow as these values hardly exist in the world today. She has footprints in our hearts that will be hard to erase. We know she is somewhere watching us, and we hope she continues to guide us and our family in our own struggles to uplift ourselves.
How we wish she was with a little longer for us to say good-bye. Well God had better plans for her to be with Him. We pray that the Lord grant her eternal rest in His home.
May her soul rest in peace.
