You can shed tears that she is gone,
Or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that
She’ll come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all
That she has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her,
Or you can be full of the love you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live in yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow
Because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she is gone,
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she’d want;
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
Thank you Lord for allowing me the pleasure of having such a wonderful wife, sister, mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother.
She was my guardian angel ever since I can remember.
Lovingly remembered by your baby sister….Barbie and our family.
We think of you everyday and miss you more than words can say. May God hold you in his arms until we’re together again. We love you and miss you.
Your loving family –
Gary, Barb, Bea, Ken, Bonnie, Mike, Chuck, Kim, Andy, Carolanne, Travis. Jillian, Brenton, Brittney, Mikey, Austin, Kyra.
