We Celebrate the Life of Dana Elzi

Updated on April 27, 2016

In Loving Memory of Dana

Let us celebrate her life. and in doing so, tap into the value of the gifts, we now must call memories,

Each of us has our own memories neatly tucked away, which can only be stimulated by our thoughts,

When asked the question one by one of all those who participated side by side with her in our endeavors and assignments together,

Give just one word that described her!

The responses varied according to how she affected each one of us, One said, “sweet”; another said “smiley”, while another said, listener, then another said, joyful,

Someone else said, “prepared”, then another uttered, “compassionate”, another one said, “lovable” and another said “hearty”,

In one voice we are all saying, we appreciate and love you!

We are celebrating her life, and how she touched our lives, these are indeed precious memories,

Because when one departs from this life, memories are really all we have left of them to hold on to which assist us with the loss,

These memories are treasures!

Some have pictures and photos; and they are wealthy reminders of her as well; no matter what your memory of her may be, it is yours, and thanks for sharing,

We have all come to this moment, and it brings with it sadness, sorrow, and tears, Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning, said the Psalmist,

Comfort walks alongside our grief weighing in with all kinds of emotions, and even questions, Grace and peace holds our hands as close companions,

All of the unrest due to our frailty still can’t compare with the hope that transcends sickness, death and the grave,

We have a hope for our beloved, and for ourselves that goes beyond death and the somber chords it echoes,

She exhibited to us what true courage looks like in the face of infirmity, and besides Infirmity that produces death will never have the last word,

She was teaching us as well, how to be brave, and, how to have a relentless determination regardless of all opposition,

Resident in this hope is what allows us to ask death, where is your sting? Grave where is your victory?

Knowing that in the arms of the Savior, this dear one is now at rest in His peace, and this is what provides us with the comfort we need to celebrate her life.
