Reading from her book, a passage about her children: "When they are older and telling their own children about their grandmother, they will be able to say that she stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her way -- and it surely has not -- she adjusted her sails."
This has shaken me. Not that I did not know she was going to die. We are all going to die. She lived her life with such grace. She has been a lady.
I hope I am as adept at adjusting my sails.
Godspeed Elizabeth. You are now with your beloved Wade. Bless your children.
