Mother & Grandmother's Wonderful Legacy There Is A Wonderful Legacy of Which We Wish To Tell About A Wonderful Woman That We Love So Well Her Strength Lives Within Us And Grows Stronger Each Day Her Honor Lingers Though She Has Slipped Away We Miss The Sound, Of Her Laughter, In Her Style Lectures Too! We Miss Hearing Her Say I Love You She Fought A Good Battle Then Gave Up The Fight To Rest In The Arms Of Jesus What A Beautiful Sight In Our Hearts Her Memory Will Always Stay Nothing Could Ever Take Her Remembrance Away . Love You! Children & Grandchildren "To Those I Love" When I am gone, just release me, let me go - so I can move into my afterglow. You mustn't tie me down with your tears; Let's be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love, you can only guess how much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, but now it's time I traveled on alone So grieve for me awhile, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted with trust. It's only for a while that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home". Acknowledgements The family wishes to extend their sincere thanks to everyone for their many acts of kindness, through your prayers, cards and phone calls during our time of bereavement. May God bless you and His love be yours to share. Special thanks to her caregivers: Gloria Trent, Adolphus Allen and Arlester "ReRe" Mayo.
