In Loving Memory of DOLORES H. JEWELL June 26, 1941 – Aug. 25, 2002 We are connected, my mother and I, by an invisible cord not seen by the eye. It’s not like the cord that connects us ’til birth. This cord can’t be seen by any on earth. This cord does it’s work right from the start. It binds us together attached to my heart. I know that it is there, though no one can see. The invisible cord from my mother to me. The strength of this cord is hard to describe. It can not be destroyed, it can not be denied. It’s stronger than any cord Man could create. It withstands the test, can hold any weight. And though you are gone and not here with me, the cord is still there but no one can see. It pulls at my heart. I am bruised… I am sore. But this cord is my lifeline as never before. I am thankful that God connects us this way. A mother and child forever we’ll stay (“The Cord” Author Unknown). There are no words to describe the pain of your loss. Your abscence is felt in every moment, every breath. You were our true north; the light that brought us home. You are so missed. May God bless and keep you safe in his care. All my love, Gail
