So long ago there was joy in my world. Life was ahead of me and wonder never ceased. Growing, learning, toiling beside my Mother and Father moved effortlessly into an arranged marriage and the bearing of my children. I learned about grief through the loss of my infant son and later my grown daughter. While love was not a part of my marriage, it was the center of my parenting. The pain for my losses never diminished. The glow of youth long-since gone, the toils of my middle years bent my back but never my spirit. Through all my challenges my faith remained. I died alone, with no human presence to take my hand. The Lord pulled me up and held me close so that all these ages later I might view the worldly remains of a life well-lived. My name was Hazel A. Wilson and I walked among you, bent but never broken.
