Remembering the Life of Mother Eloise B. Maxwell

“Every day since the Lord called you home we wake up with the knowledge, someone is missing. We go through our day and in the back of our minds we hear a whisper, someone is missing. We sit down to eat and in the back of our minds we hear a whisper, someone is missing.

We wake up and think, there should be a birthday to celebrate today and we hear clearly, someone is missing!  We wake up and think, this is the day my whole world changed and we hear clearly, someone is missing! We wake up and the holiday season is here and we hear loudly, someone is missing!

We try to remain in good spirits and we hear a whisper, someone is missing. We gather with family to celebrate the special occasions and we look around the room and inside our head we hear screaming, someone is missing!

Mama, we enjoy spending time reminiscing of your words, legacy and teachings, but this voice that we hear squeezes our hearts. We love you and know that God loved you best, but please understand, someone – no, you are missing!

~Love your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
