Personal Notes

Marie was the only grandmother that I knew. She read her bible daily, and always had a card ready for anyone, for any occasion, ready to send. She was a wonderful grandmother and great-grandmother to my children and I. She loved her grand babies with all her heart and we will miss her terribly. Be at peace now with the angels, Gram. We love you.

Every time I think of you, my saddened heart still cries. But I know you are at peace, resting in God's Heavenly skies. The pain you had was left behind once you entered Heaven's door. Held by God Almightly, you will never feel pain anymore. Your soul now flies freely, reaching down to mine. Always to keep you so close to me, bonded through the passage of time. It still hurts so much to think of you because I miss having you here. Yet I know that God's gift to me, is to keep you near.
