Eulogy for a Daughter:

During this difficult time, I am trying my best to keep a positive attitude. 

My wife and I could never have asked for a more wonderful daughter.  Everything she did made us proud.  From her earliest days at home, sleeping soundly through the night, to her last moments here with us, she made us the luckiest parents on Earth. 

Kathy always had such a thirst for life.  As a child, she would run home from school after learning something special, and immediately devote her entire time to it.  I remember when she was in the 3rd grade and her teacher, Mrs. Miller, taught the class about dinosaurs.  Kathy came in through that door like a tornado, wanting to learn everything she could about dinosaurs.  We took her to the local museum, where life like replicas stood.  I will never forget the look on her face that day.  That look that only an enthusiastic child can give.  I was so excited for her new found passion.

This thirst for life only grew.  As Kathy became an adult, she found her calling with teaching.  Her whole life she hungered for knowledge, and now she wanted to give back.  She devoted so much time to these young children, and she loved every minute of it.  Kathy was so content with her position in life.  That made Beth and I so happy.

She also adored her family.  Her husband Jason was the light of her life.  I used to be her number one man, but I gladly turned that over to the man she would spend the rest of her life with.  They didn’t start a family together, but I know that was always a dream of Kathy’s.  She wanted to be a mother.  She wanted to teach her children everything she had learned, and she hoped that they would have the same thirst for life as she did.

As I said earlier, I am trying my best to remain positive.  Even death can be viewed in a positive manner.  I have found some comfort in Henry Scott Holland, who was a professor of divinity at Oxford University.  His outlook on death is soothing to me.  He said:

Death is nothing at all-I have only slipped away into the next room.  I am I, and you are you.  Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.  Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way you always used.  Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.  Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.  Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.  Let it be spoken without the ghost of a shadow on it.  Life means all that it ever meant…There is absolutely unbroken continuity.

What is death but a negligible accident?  Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? 

I am waiting for you-for an interval-somewhere near just around the corner.

All is well.

Kathy, we all love you, and will miss you.  But you will always be in our minds.  We will speak to you and laugh with you.  We will call you by your old familiar name.  Daddy is so proud of you.  You will always be in my heart.
