Message from Casey Eldredge (daughter)

" August 16, 1932- August 11, 2016 What matters most is the dash between those years, for it represents the time alive on Earth, and now only those who loved her know what that dash is worth. It matters not the cars, the house, the cash, but how we live and love and how we we spent that dash. So think about this long and hard; Are there things you would like to change?
For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough to consider what is true and real
and always try to understand the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives like we have never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile,
Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.
So when your eulogy is being read with your life’s actions to rehash…
Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?
(Excerpts from a favorite poem by Linda Ellis)Casey
Please share with us your stories of how our mom spent her dash. Thank you"
