BIRD-VOLD

ADALAIDE “BLAKELY” MARGURITE

My Lord, the baby is dead! Why, my Lord—dare I ask why? It will not hear the whisper of the wind or see the beauty of its parents’ face—it will not see the beauty of Your creation or the flame of a sunrise. Why, my Lord?

“Why, My child—do you ask ‘why’? Well, I will tell you why.

You see, the child lives. Instead of the wind she hears the sound of angels singing before My throne. Instead of the beauty that passes she sees everlasting Beauty—she sees My face. She was created and lived a short time so the image of her parents imprinted on her face may stand before Me as their personal intercessor. She knows secrets of heaven unknown to men on earth. She laughs with a special joy that only the innocent possess. My ways are not the ways of man. I create for My Kingdom and each creature fills a place in that Kingdom that could not be filled by another. She was created for My joy and her parents’ merits. She has never seen pain or sin. She has never felt hunger or pain. I breathed a soul into a seed, made it grow and called it forth.”

I am humbled before you, my Lord, for questioning Your wisdom, goodness, and love. I speak as a fool—forgive me. I acknowledge Your sovereign rights over life and death. I thank You for the life that began for so short a time to enjoy so long an Eternity.

— Mother M. Angelica

KARREN

SANDRA KARREN’S heart came to rest on Tuesday, December 27th, 2016 at the age of 79. She was predeceased by her husband and best friend, Barry Karren of Picture Butte, and leaves behind their 3 daughters: Leslie Karren, Tarri (Stuart) Crothers, and Shellie (Stefan) Kienzle; and 3 grandsons: Matthew, David and Oliver.

Mom was a “big city girl” who married a “small town boy” in the late ’50s. Together they travelled to and lived in many far-flung places, where Mom always established a warm home for her family and was famous for her improvised “gourmet delights”. In her younger years she was very spontaneous and adventurous; so in her senior years she just wanted to relax and take life easy in Picture Butte and finally at Black Rock Terrace. Mom liked to wear colourful clothes and funky shoes. She was artistic, poetic, funny and was an always enthusiastic, but terrible, singer.

Dearest Mom, it lifts our hearts that your spirit will always be felt in the sunflowers and bright yellow daisies you so enjoyed.

At Sandra’s request, no formal funeral service will be held.
