We shared a yummy picnic lunch and thoughts on our beloved Ethel.
We shared laughs too while reminiscing Ethel’s absent mindedness in managing her work roster. Quite often, she would report for the wrong shift or turn up to work on her rostered day off. Double-trouble from day two! 😁
“Use your smile to change the world; don’t let the world change your smile.”
This is what I remember when I think of Ethel. Her lovely smile. Her smile changed the world around her.
I remember the first time I met Ethel. She filled the room like a breath of fresh air. All smiles and so very cheerful. I warmed up to her immediately. This is saying a lot about her wonderful personality.
And for those of you who do not know me, you must understand something about me, I take time to warm up to anyone. With Ethel, it was an instant friendship. It was a very short friendship for she went to be with the Lord on the 22nd of December, 2020 but it was a cherished friendship.
She touched the lives of so many people. I am humbled and so blessed that I got to meet her and call her friend. She was simply wonderful.
She was a beautiful soul. That was Ethel.
She was an embodiment of hope, love, peace, joy, good cheer & faith. Faith is what she lived. She truly radiated the light of God in her life.
When I heard she passed, I cried because I will miss her dearly as will everyone whose life she touched.
She fulfilled God’s purpose here on earth and now she is with God.
Passed away peacefully with family by her side on Tuesday 22nd December 2020.
