Condolences

Condolence From: Katie Guiltner
Condolence: "Mrs. Lois Wright" as we always called her growing up was always so sweet to my family. My Dad looked after her and Homer, thinking of them like another set of parents after he lost his own, and in turn she treated us much like we were her own grandchildren. Growing up we visited Lois and Homer pretty often and we would sometimes do little chores for them, and were always rewarded with a bit of earnings. I always remember their home was clean and classy, like a picture from a 1950's magazine. She always had a candy dish on the coffee table with goodies in it, and all the hospitality that came along with it. One thing I always admired every time I went to their house was a china press full of sparkling fine china. As a child I could stand there forever looking at the many different pieces, all with pretty painted flowers and gold trimmed edges. I thought I had never seen anything more beautiful. Evidently Mrs. Lois noticed my admiration and decided that I should inherit the set, though she insisted I take that fine set of china before she passed so she could see me enjoy it! She also gave an early inheritance of fine things to all my sisters to use and enjoy. I was so touched by her generosity. Now many years later I am a missionary to Japan, and I still use that same set of china to entertain my guests. I think of the fine lady who gave it to me, and hope to pass on the same kindness and hospitality in my home and ministry that she showed me!

I'm sure she would agree right now with me, that the greatest thing in life is to use all you have, and all you are to share the love of Jesus with others. Heaven has gained a fine lady.
