The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want . . . . Psalm 23:1a
I am 97 years old and during these almost 100 years, I have suffered many losses in my life. When I was about three years of age my brother who was five died of a ruptured appendix. Shortly after his death, my 18-month old baby brother died of pneumonia. The death of these children devastated my mother and, as a result, she would not let me out of her sight for fear something would happen to me. I was never allowed to do what other children did but lived a very sheltered life.
