“An angel lived among us, a gift from God above. She showered us with kindness and shared with us her love. She cherished every moment with the man who was her life: walking hand in hand together, facing life with all its strife. She loved her children dearly, each one a different way, nestled close within her heart now that she’s far away. She’s gone to live with Jesus. But she’s here with us today, smiling down on every one of us, telling us that she’s okay”.
