Sometimes the night was beautiful
Una Maria Heffron Bolen, 56, of New Orleans, LA, passed away on September 9, 2014 after losing her battle with cancer. Una was born in New Iberia, LA, on October 11, 1957 and is a graduate of Abramson High School in New Orleans. Una, guided by her deep Christian faith, dedicated her life and efforts to helping others in need. Una was preceded in death by her parents, Walter Hillary Heffron, Jr. and Una LaSalle Heffron. Una is survived by her children, Johanna (Bolen) Mango, Christopher Michael Bolen and John Michael Bolen; grandchildren, Hannah, Brock, Jackson and Mae-Marie; siblings, Annette, Walter, Francis and Beth Heffron; and other family and friends.
She died several weeks ago. She, I suspect, didn’t fight it as others have. For them, fighting for this life is all there is. For her there is the hope fulfilled beyond. Her’s is a life of reward. And a great one it is. Although her’s wasn’t a noteworthy life in the sense of achievement or recognition here, she nevertheless left her mark and passes on her unique, undeniable fix into a world broken in falsity.
She lived as she died, loving, caring, living, sharing. Indeed, rest in the peace of the Eternal One.
