By the grace of God, gone but never forgotten.

To live in the hearts of those you love is not to die.

In tears we saw you sinking,

We watched you fade away.

You suffered much in silence,

You faced your task with courage.

Your spirit did not bend,

But still you kept on fighting,

Until the very end.

God saw you getting tired,

When a cure was not to be,

So he put his arms around you,

And whispered “Come with me “

So when we saw you sleeping,

So peaceful, free from pain

We could not wish you back,

To suffer that again.

We love you Mom.
