To Grandmother With Love ______________________________ I had an angel here beside me, Sent to Earth to help and guide me, An angel always there for me Sent to love and care for me. She did the things that angels should: She taught me what was bad and good, She gave me hope when no one cared, She held my hand when I was scared, She cheered me up when I was down (She could make a smile from a frown), She doctored me when I was sick, And many another angel trick. Today my angel earned her wings, Her halo, harp and other things. But today I'm lost and all alone For today God called my angel home. --David Pawson ©

Our Family Chain We little knew that morning That God would call your name. In life we loved you dearly; In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always by our side. Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.

Alice was just not my mother-in-law; she was my friend. I loved her as much as my own mother. Whenever I needed her, she was always there for me. There will never be another person on this earth like her. I was her only daughter-in-law and for that I felt special, especially when someone would ask me about my last name and always if I knew Alice and I was so proud to say yes, she is my mother-in-law. I will always remember her, her kindness and loving ways will never be forgotten. I will miss you ever so much, but I know that you are in a better place now. I love you very much, always have and always will. I hope to see you again one day.

I'll always remember Auntie Alice's smile. I loved hearing her tell stories about the old days. About her and Uncle Al and my Dad and about the times my sisters came to visit. I am so glad we got to visit a few years ago. My Dad had such a wonderful time. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Love to all Robin and Raymond

We lost a mother with a heart of gold, How much we miss her can never be told, She shared our troubles and helped us along, If we follow her footsteps we will never go wrong. We miss you from the fireside chair, Your loving smile and gentle air, Your vacant place no one can fill, We miss you mother and always will. She was a mother so very rare, Content in her home and always there, On earth she toiled, in Heaven she rests, God bless you mother you were one of the best. Each time we look at your picture, You seem to smile and say, Don't be sad but courage take, And love each other for my sake. O Sweet Jesus, for the sake of Thy Bitter Passion and the sorrows of Thy Immaculate Mother have mercy on her soul, and let the light of thy countenance shine upon her. We love and miss you Mom! We will all reunite in heaven someday. Love you, Toni

I will never forget my sweet cousin Alice; I spent many summers with her as we grew up together. We were very much like sisters. When I needed help, Alice was always there by my side. Rest Easily, my cousin, you have earned a beautiful spot in Heaven. My heart is with you, and I know we will meet again soon. Love, Cousin Florence
