Through the Gates


Mother left us this morning to make her journey through the Pearly Gates. She was surrounded by all her family. After she died the women of the family dressed her in her favorite outfit with the pearl decorated neckline, snazzy black and white slippers, pearl earrings, Princess Diana ring, pearly nail polish, Poissin fragrance, and makeup. She was beautifully dressed for the journey and it was a comforting ritual for us.

    To all the Wilsons:
    What a beautiful day for your mom!!! To be surrounded by all that you love when you are taking the journey to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. And how fitting for Aunt Cathie……. Pearls and sparkles! A tribute fit for a queen.
    I know in my heart that all of the Heinks are reunited again in Heaven, having a fabulous party!
    I am sending my love and prayers that God will be gracious to you all in this time of sorrow.
    Love Peggy

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
