I found this in a journal yesterday as I looked back over my old writings.


If I could write my own page in history I would want it to be something like this:

She lived a life of struggles, trials, joy, surprise and love. Whatever happened to her or around her she remained steadfast and confident of the purpose for which she had been placed on this earth in the time that she had been given. There is not a singular great achievement that can be attached to her name but the writings, teachings, photos and Ideas she has left will evoke something new in generations to come. We who are left behind have a many faceted view by which to help us remember and cherish her. The hole left behind will not be filled by one but by many. Ivy Stracener you will be missed.
