Although cut short her life was full of doing things for others. She loved her husband, kids, grandchildren, her pets, and friends, her sisters and her brothers. She worked with Veterans, Scouts and kids, gave all she had to give. She knew all that she longed to do, but not how long she'd live.Cancer had invaded her and ate her life away. She had to go despite our need, she knew she couldn't stay. Each Monday, I would visit,sit the whole day by her side. It broke my heart to see hope fade, until at last it died. There was no cure, nor would there be, God called her from above. She slipped away while she held the hand of the man she'd always loved. We mourn our loss, we miss her so, but we know that she's at peace. The memories of all her goodness stay and they will never cease. I love you Mom, and need to say I still miss you oh so much. Yet sometimes when I need you most, I feel your loving touch.I believe in God and I know you dwell, in Heaven there above ,And someday when my life is through we'll be together in his love.
