The angels looked down from heaven one night
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.
They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven
Forever to remain.
Look down on us from heaven
Keep us free from hurt and pain,
You'll always be within my heart
Until we meet again.
DC lost a shining star this morning. Our dear, sweet kadesma died early this morning Pacific Time and will leave an indelible impression on many of us.
She was a gentle lady who graced DC with her presence in the fall of 2004 and management, in its wisdom, made her a part of the management team in August of 2006. She was a wise woman and a fine judge of character.
As was evidenced by her posts, her family (especially her grandchildren) was what made her go and filled her heart.
Those of us who had the honor to work alongside her will be forever changed and enriched. We all loved her.
I am sorry to be the bearer of this sad news but she would want all her family here at DC celebrate her life.
So...let's say, "Glad to have known you, Shining Star!"
