To many I left without saying good-bye, you may be thinking it wasn't my time to die. I know the pain you all feel but lean not onto your own understanding it was God's will. To my beautiful children, be strong if you can, please know that I have left you in the best of hands. I know that you will make me proud and stand tall; I am now your Heavenly Angel who will catch you if you fall. To my loving mother, I honor and thank you for helping me through, you guided and taught me very well as a mother you did not fail. To my loving husband, this is not the end, we shall meet again. To my family and friends, I ask that you weep not too long, for I am resting safe in my Heavenly fathers arm.
