The Ford Family left a message on April 6, 2009:
To my dearest friend Anne, and her wonderful family... Words cannot adequately express our sorrow at the lost of your mother...your grandmother...your loving wife. If there was an exemplary model of how a family should be...it would be yours...and for that you can be so proud. May the wonderful memories you share help carry you through this time of grief...may God wrap you in His loving arms, and may you know that we are here for you always...and always with you in spirit. The attached poem is so appropriate, as I think Bea Heesakker truly "lived her dash" well. May it bring you comfort just knowing that she will always be watching over you and smiling down upon you from heaven. With much love and many blessings, The Ford Family - Alpharetta GA Tim, Julianne, Ryan & Chris HOW DID YOU LIVE YOUR DASH? I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on her tombstone from the beginning...to the end. He noted that first came her date of birth And spoke of the following date with tears, But he said what mattered most of all Was the dash between those years. (1900-1970) For that dash represents all the time that she spent alive on earth... And now only those who loved her know what that little line is worth. For it matters not, how much we own; the cars...the house...the cash, What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash. So think about this long and hard...Are there things you'd like to change? For you never know how much time is left, that can still be rearranged. If we could just slow down enough to consider what's true and real, And always try to understand how other people feel. Be less quick to anger, show appreciation more, and love the people In our lives like we've never loved before. If we treat each other with respect, and wear a smile more often..... Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while. So, when your eulogy's being read with your life's actions to rehash..... Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your Dash? Author Unknown -
