Pam, Sheryl, & Nancy, I mourn with you in the loss of your mother. But of course, it is only our loss, while her gain. Your mother meant so much to me throughout the years, as we came in and out of each other's lives. It seemed that we reconnected at times when I was in need of encouragement, and while your mother's gifts were numerous, the ability to instill inspiration was her inheritance to me. In the opening lines of 1John, John is portrayed as an old man speaking to the young who were not there when Jesus walked the earth. John tells them how he had walked and talked with Jesus and rested his head on Jesus's breast - touching Jesus. The Christian belief is that Jesus was the incarnate manifestation of God on earth. Christians are to be a continuation of that same embodiment. Anyone who encountered your mother, receiving a hug, a touch from her hand, heard a word from her mouth, or even witnessed the twinkle in her eyes, surely they had just met Jesus in the person of Eileen Chamness - Morin. I will be watching the service online and be with you in spirit. Peace and Love Your cousin, Matthew Baldwin
