Jean Richardson (Fagans), born July 14, 1939, died January 14, 2012

My Mother, Jean Richardson Fagans

“Do you not remember Jeanie,

How she met them in the moonlight,

Took their gifts both choice and many,

Ate their fruits and wore their flowers

Pluck’d from bowers

Where summer ripens at all hours?

But ever in the noonlight

She pined and pined away;

Sought them by night and day,

Found them no more, but dwindled and grew grey;

Then fell with the first snow….”

    I still remember how happy she was when I thanked her for the beautiful daughter she raised. And now that she’s no longer with us, she is more with us than ever before. The good memories you shared about her are reason to transcend the mourning of her passing into a celebration of the gentle soul she had. There is nothing better a mother can leave a child than that sweet gentleness. And that she did. May she be as happy where she is now as we are as we celebrate her time with us.
