Katherine Martin's Triumphant Surrender (Recounted By Her Husband, Franc Sloan)

Categories // Eulogies

katherine_martin_new.jpgSusan notes: Katherine Martin, author, playwright, wife, mother, and 'beauty,' is part of the fabric of this website.

Martin died in January 14, 2006. She and I never met in this life; perhaps we will in another. Her husband Franc Sloan generously agreed to share two letters he wrote to family and friends about her departure from this world (fittingly, on a big red horse).

Susan notes:
This is the eulogy I delivered at my grandmother's funeral in 1990. My "Gran" was a spirited, independent woman with a mind of her own (hey, that's a quality that seems to run in the family!). This year marked the 20th anniversary of her death, but she is as alive in my heart now as she was when I used to sit with her and chat in her sunroom in St Jovite, Canada...

A Eulogy for Judy O'Sullivan

Categories // Eulogies

Judy - Oh what a wonderful friend and colleague.

Judy once told her sister that she became a teacher because it was a profession that offered and adequate income yet gave her the summers off.  However we know she stayed with it because she cared so much for all the children.  Judy gave more than her expertise.  She gave her love. All children were cherished.

My mother-in-law Bette died in early 2008. She was a wonderful woman. This is the eulogy I delivered at her funeral.

My grandfather, just before he died, said to my mother, “as long as you are alive, I shall never be truly gone”.
