"I HAVE A PLACE IN HEAVEN"
Please don't sing sad songs for me,
Forget your grief and fears,
For I am in a perfect place,
Away from pain and tears,,,
I'm far away from hunger
And hurt and want and pride.
I have a place in Heaven
With the Master at my side.
My life on earth was very good,
As earthly lives can go,
But Paradise is so much more
Than anyone can know,,,
My heart is filled with happiness
And sweet rejoicing, too.
To walk with God is perfect peace,
A joy forever new.
This page is dedicated in loving memory of a dearly loved friend of many....Lannie C. Blanchard...aka...Bayouperch.
I personally met Lannie over a year ago on an online list I was on. She was the nicest, kindest, gentlest soul a person could ever want in their life. Lannie and I became close because she had tragically lost her son and I my father, and she understood how I was feeling and where I was coming from. She always managed to bring light to my face on many dark days...that was her nature:) Lannie reached out to many...over time she told me that she would gladly be the sister to me that I never had:) She always sent everyone emails to lift their spirits and let them know how much she loved all of us:)
Lannie loved her family and friends dearly. She was heartbroken at the tragic loss of her son, but chose to go on and try and make others happy..because if you were happy she was happy:) She also treasured her grandchildren!!
Lannie had a great faith in God that I believe got her through many hard times. She always had faith that God would her through and the people she cared about and loved.
Lannie...you will be greatly missed here on earth, but we can all take comfort in knowing you no longer suffer from any pain or illness...for you are with your son and in God's loving hands....I love you Lannie...my dear sister!
