Mother of Strength
by Miles Patrick Yohnke
Bridget and Francis Yohnke
Oct 17, 1968 saw the tragic event in one human life; it changed the lives of many. Francis Lewis Yohnke died. Bridget Yohnke's life had changed; she was just 36. She had just lost her best friend, her love, her husband.
A lot of people at this time would fall into self-destruction, self-pity, and self-loathing, but she didn't! She was strong! She would devote her life to her three sons.
She would instill love, passion, confidence, kindness, a desire for life, and to place others before themselves. She gave her sons these values to take on the world and to make a difference. She broke the cycle.
Her father was an alcoholic and the family struggled to find itself. Where she found her strength we don't really know.
Because of her life, she would not just shape the lives of her sons, but their children. They too have since carved out a niche in the world and are making a great difference in it.
So today and always, we celebrate her life because she changed the life of many, including perhaps most importantly, her own children.
Thank you, Mother.
Your Loving Son,
