    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, may God hold you in the palm of His hands and help you find the strength and courage to get through this difficult time. May the love of God, your friends and family surround and fill your heart as you journey down this road to your new normal.

Death is the heartache no one can heal. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure no one can steal. May you find comfort in knowing an angel is watching over you.

    Gone Away by Diana Blokzyl

    An Angel whispered
    take my hand and
    come with me
    you’re work here is done.

    I went away to a place
    where there’s no tears, nor sorrow
    only laughter and smiles,
    there will always be a Tomorrow.

    As I move amongst the clouds.
    I’ll look down and smile upon you,
    while the angels
    sing a heavenly song.

    I am not alone
    all who went before
    are here
    they awaited my return.

    I know you’ll grieve
    and wish I was still here
    I am here in the memories
    you hold dear.

    Remember how much I
    love you
    and know I took your
    love with me.

    I did not wish for
    you to cry, nor feel sad.
    My pain is gone and
    I am Free!

    Soon you’ll come to me
    until then
    God will be with you
    Just as He’s with me…..
