MARY JANE MIDDLETON

 

October 10th 1992

 

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel by our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train leaving us on this journey alone.

As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant, i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don’t realize they vacated their seats. This train will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers, requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty, we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.

We love you. We miss you.

Dad, kids, grandkids & Miss Lila
