Letter: May 10, 2010

To stay with us, you fought so hard –

One last battle you could not win –

We knew that soon you would be gone.

We clasped your hand so warm in ours.

Sweet soft-spoken I love yous, until the end.

Cause on this day, God was calling you home.

The pain, now he taketh from you.

Your sweet smile we have seen a million times.

A recorded message to hear your voice, I listen

A photo book of precious memories are kept close by . . .

Your number still remains on speed dial . . .

But proud we know that you are of your family

And how you taught us with God’s grace,

Still there will always be

Faith, Hope and Love

Through each of us you live . . .

Continuing your traditions we will forever pursue,

All the while so grateful of you.

A devoted wife you were . . .

A mother’s love you gave so beautifully to each . . .

To honor that love, we gather.

Rest In Peace, our Dear Mother

As the voices of children are heard all around

And the ring of laughter is echoing throughout the Hillside.

As the wind sways the barn door and the birds sing your favorite songs . . .

Let us be grateful for this place.

This Place our Ancestors held for us.

This Place we can gather to find Peace, Comfort and Happiness.

This Place we can all call home.

Rest In Peace, Our Sweet Angel
