I had a great time at a wake service tonight.
That might sound odd, but I did. We were celebrating the life of Bette L. McMahon, wife of Gene, mother of six, grandmother and great-grandmother. A South Omaha girl.
We prayed, we laughed, we cried. Her son, Tom McMahon, gave a wonderful eulogy with stories and details and jokes that painted a lovely and loving picture of his mother.
A slide show that followed captured the young Bette and Gene — South High’s cutest couple — and family through the years.
Bette, you will be missed. But oh, what a legacy you have left behind.
