Condolences may be left at Eulogy read at Honey's Service given: Brian Tiechman~ The bible calls us to hope, to persevere and have faith in the things not seen. We are all united not only in our desire to pay our respects to Honey, but also rather in our need to do so. It is an honor to celebrate the life of an extraordinary woman. The life of her selfless contribution to family and friends no matter the circumstance. A life that would have many detours and yet a constant positive approach to every challenge. We are here to celebrate the life of our dear friend, a warm and generous servant who devoted her life to bettering the lives of others and an unbelievable friend. When Thom asked me to speak today, I paused because Honey has so many wonderful people in her life and I wasn't sure I could say what was needed. I was not sure I could properly convey what an incredible Mother she was. I worried I could not speak effectively of the sacrifice she made for her son. I was worried because she most likely would have wanted someone here to address you in high heels. I know the agony of this arduous journey and when preparing, I thought of the last few moments Andrew and I were allowed to sit with Honey. We walked through the maze of corridors and made our way to her bedside. Honey sat upright, quietly holding court. I could have said anything, but why did I have to come out of the gate with you look real good. She gazed at me for a few seconds as she was unable to speak and it felt like a few hours. Honey looked directly into my soul, made sure she had my full attention, sighed and rolled her eyes. She was in excruciating pain, but the pain never overcame her. Honey was a strong woman. I hoped she could hear me when I said we considered her a friend and that we loved her. Honey was surrounded by love in her room and Dustin stood by her side as she had done for him. The social structure was changing and it was Dustin's time to return his support to Honey. She was a quintessential woman, born in a small town and destined to become iron, a rose destined to become a steel magnolia. Honey would see her family through its share of adversity, accomplishment and uncertainty. Through circumstance came a woman of steadiness, calm and a cheerful confidence that life would bring good things.
