On June 23, Lisa's mom, Shirley Lyle, passed away. She had lived a long and good life. It was her wish that there not be a sad, mournful funeral, but instead, a party. So a celebration of her life was planned. Lisa and I are blessed with the finest friends and family that anyone can have, sometime it's hard to tell where one stops and the other begins. These friends and family came together here at the farm to celebrate Shirley's life. There were some stories told. There were readings, and there was some singing and pickin'. There were some tears and a lot of laughter. I think that it was just as Shirley would have wanted and more. The feeling from that evening is still hard to describe. But just know this, on June 23 Shirley was lifted up on the wings of angles, and on July 26 forty five people were simply lifted up.
