I received a message tonight that we have lost one of our Ladder players to cancer on 11/25.
The following was written by her daughter which she would like to share with us.
She will be missed very much by all who knew her.
If roses grow in Heaven
Lord please pick a bunch for us
Place them in our mother's arms
and tell her they're from us
Tell her we love her and miss her
And when she turns to smile
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for a while
Remembering her is easy
We do it every day
But there is an ache within our hearts
That will never go away.
Lodis is dead... She is survived by her 3 daughters... If you can't remember her with smiles and laughter don't remember her with tears... That is what she wrote on her paper for her cremation... Other than that mom really didn't want anything and therefore my sisters and I have honored her wishes.
