Ron- Thinking of you and jotted down these words.
‘When I closed my eyes, the other night…God took my hand, and my Soul took flight
My body gave out, my heart grew faint, but my spirit soared and my Soul sang
So I closed my eyes and God took my hand and took me home to the promised Land.
Hold on to my love, as I hold onto the love I have for all of you, remember the laughter and let it help sustain you.
I’ll always be with you all, til we see each other again for I am not gone….God just took my hand’
May the sting of the physical loss soon become fondness of memories remembered and shared. I dream of rain for you and yours, my friend.
I pray God’s Richest Blessings on all of you, her family.
