Eunice Kennedy Shriver - 1921-2009

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will." --Mahatma Gandhi

Today we honor the memory of famous widow, Eunice Kennedy Shriver. She died August 11, 2009 at age 88.

Eunice Kennedy Shriver was married to Robert Sargent Shriver, Jr. in 1972. Robert Sargent Shriver was U. S. Ambassador to France from 1968-1990, and was U. S. vice presidential candidate in 1972. They had 5 children: Robert III, Maria, Timothy, Mark, and Anthony.

In the 1960s, Eunice Kennedy Shriver founded the Special Olympics. Her life was devoted to helping establish numerous health-care facilities, researching causes of mental retardation, and ways to treat it.

To the family and friends of Mrs. Shriver, Griefcase extends profound sympathy and sincere wishes for mourning joy all the days of your lives.

Mourning Quote:

"As a man lives and thinks, so will he write." --John Galsworthy

Mourning Joy:

Q: What do you call an empty jar of Cheeze Whiz?

A: Cheeze Whuz.

After we remember Him, do what I do. Open what I lovingly refer to as a Joy-nal, set the clock timer for ten, fingerhug your pen, and write something.

Go ahead. I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day, and just remember: we're not alone.
