A light from our family is gone a voice we loved is stilled a place is vacant in the home which never can be filled. We have to mourn the loss of one we would've loved to keep but God who surely loved her best has finally made her sleep. After a lifetime of her love and joy and music to fill our ears God leaves these wondrous memories to help us through our tears.
