    Geoff and Jessica , John and Jerine,
    I am so sorry to hear this news. Every encounter I had with your mother was full of kindness and grace and she had the softest eyes that welcomed you in like a hug. I’m going to commit to pray specifically that in the days ahead you will feel so much love from people around you. Grief is like a ocean full of waves that are crashing all around us and in the beginning when we can hardly stay afloat. I will pray for people around you to send things that will keep your head above water until the waves slowly subside . Although the waves never cease , The navigation tools you’re given will help you the rest of the journey. Much love do you guys❤️

    Polly’s humble beginnings… she was a dandelion, with deep roots planted in Alberta soil. With a sunny disposition and a bright golden smile. Producing seeds of God’s love. Strewn, blown and planted in God’s creation of the wide open fields. We will meet again soon Jenny & Walter
