July 26, 1943 – April 2, 2019
Her Journey’s Just Began
Don’t think of her as gone away
Her journey’s just begun
Life holds to many facets,
This part is only one
Just think of her as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and no years.
Think how she must be wishing
That we could know today,
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched.
For nothing loved is ever lost,
And she was loved so much.
