Oh! Purple!!! You simply must wear purple. You have always looked beautiful in that color. You were wearing it the first time I saw you. Your long dark hair was piled on top of your head, tied with a purple ribbon to match your shirt and your fuzzy socks. I didn’t know about your sock issues until later. I laugh remembering how they always had to match your outfit. Ah, you were a vision to behold. Lovely! A lovely figure indeed clothed in purple.
Your hair is no longer dark and would, undoubtedly, look quite comical with a bow at your age. Still, you would look stunning in purple. Only don’t wear the vivid, nearly lavender color of your favorite purple roses. Choose instead a nice, deep purple.
I can see you now. You shall stand before the sea of mourners. Your head held high, your eyes dry. You will say all the proper things required when condolences are offered. I hope that you will add that my life was indeed joy-filled and lacking in nothing and that I left completely satisfied.
Oh, my dear. I hope that you know that my years with you are ranked amongst my most prized possessions. At the top, actually; second only to my relationship with our Lord. Oh the lives we have touched in His precious name. I thank you for leading me to Him just as I thank Him for leading me to you. What a joy you have been. Because of you, I walked through life most blessed among the blessed.
