A Life Well Lived

Etna Church 
Etna, NY
April 23, 2022

 On Saturday, family and friends gathered to celebrate the life of my Mom, Sidney Doan. 

We gathered inside a small church in Etna, New York. The church was filled two overflowing and the service which was planned for an hour took two hours to complete as so many people took time to express their memories of how Mom's impact on their lives. 

The service was at times funny because of the stories being told and other times tearful as we collectively grieved her passing--but in the end it was a celebration and for me it was uplifting to see so many of my relatives and friends gathered together, many of whom traveled great distances to be there. 

Mom touched many people during her life and for this day, for one last time, she was the star and the subject of our gathering. I have to smile about how many people mentioned that she made the best pumpkin rolls.
