I'M FREE

Don't grieve for me for now I'm, free

I'm following the path God laid for me.

I took His hand when I heard Him call

I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day

To laugh, to love, to work or play.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with time of sorrow

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life's been full, I've savored much

Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief

Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your hearts and share with me

God wanted me now" And I am Free!

Psalms 62:6-8

 


She is laid to rest in West Springfield, Pa  A Memorial Service was held on June 8, 2002 at the home of Andy & Lisa Zimmerman in Fairview Pa. blue butterfly

Family and friends communicated and laughed and showed the love that Kitty would have wanted. A family brought together by the loss of a loved one, reunited with members they had not seen in 29 years. Kitty enjoyed family gatherings and we know she was pleased with this one. We all are better people knowing Kitty and having her in our lives.

May 5, 2006  A message from Kitty
 
OK HERE IS HOW THIS THING WORKS.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT  I REALLY DON'T CARE....
 
8:10 AM THIS MORNING I FOUND A PENNY ON THE GROUND, TALE SIDE UP. 
(WHICH TO ME IS GOOD LUCK)  IT WAS A SHINNY PENNY.  YEAR 2002
IMMEDIATELY I SAID THANK YOU. BUT WASN'T SURE WHO IT WAS FROM.
 
I TURNED ON MY COMPUTER AND AN EMAIL FROM KAREN SHOWING HER ANNIVERSARY PHOTOS.
SHE SENDS THEM TO ME.

IN LOOKING THROUGH THE PHOTOS I SAW ONE OF UNCLE JOHN AND KAREN, SOME OF KATHY AND HER HUSBAND, KAREN AND BILLY.   THERE WERE A LOT OF PHOTOS THAT WERE BLURRY AND THAT IS SOMETIMES  IS A SIGN (TO ME) THAT A SPIRIT IS PRESENT.  A LOT OF TIMES IT'S JUST BLURRY PICTURES.

  
BUT LOOK AT THE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS.
 
 
AT THE MOMENT I AM LOOKING AT THE PHOTOS, I GLANCE DOWN AND LOOK AT THE PENNY I FOUND THIS MORNING.   IT WAS NOW HEADS UP.  OK MAYBE I TURNED IT OVER WHEN I PUT IT ON MY DESK. BUT I DOUBT IT.
THE YEAR 2002 WAS CLEAR AS DAY.  SO I OPENED UP MY LIFE EVER AFTER WEBSITE AND THE MEMBERS LIST HAS 2 MEMBERS.  ONE IS MY AUNT KITTY. 
  
I BELIEVE THAT MY AUNT KITTY SENT ME A SIGN THIS MORNING. WHICH PROMPTED ME TO POST THIS ON HER PAGE.
 
AUNT KITTY WAS AT HER DAUGHTER'S ANNIVERSARY PARTY.
SHE WANTED ME TO KNOW THAT. SHE WANTED ME TO LET THEM KNOW THAT SHE WAS THERE.
SHE IS HAPPY. SHE IS WITHOUT PAIN, SHE IS WATCHING OVER THEM AND KNOWS THAT ALTHOUGH THEIR LIFE ISN'T EASY. ITS GOOD.
SHE ALSO SAID TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH. 
 
THERE WILL BE A TIME WHEN SHE SEES US AGAIN. YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY OR HURRY TO GET THERE. SHE WILL BE WAITING.
INDEED YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH TOO....
 
LOVE
MARGARET

May 24, 2007  Five years have passed since Kitty left us. Each year there is something to remind me of her. Yesterday I was at my mom's and saw a door stopper, a mouse, and remembered that Kitty made it and gave it to my mom as a present. Yes it is still stopping the door from opening too far and putting a hole in the wall. Strange how our lives are filled with reminders of  our loved ones. Most of the time when we least expect it.

May 2009  Where does the time go?  My life has changed a lot since the last time I posted on my Aunt Kitty's site. I merged my website business with a computer repair business. Yes it's busy. But I still try to keep up with the websites. Life Ever After will always be here.  Maybe not always current, but the past postings will be here. As long as I am here. 
My mom has a hobby ( geocaching ) and she put a travel bug named Kitty in memory of her sister-in-law. That little travel bug Kitty has been all over the world. check out where it's been http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=1644617

I Hope no one finds this in bad taste. My dad has friends across the world and this is the only way to reach mass numbers at one time.
My dad has gone to be with my mom, his partner Kitty. She came and got him last night and they are going fishing. I will post again later when we have everything finalized. Thank you for all your love and support. MAY THEY REST IN PEACE TOGETHER...
