β€˜He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain...' (Rev. 21:4)

I read this beautiful poem, and send it to you.
I love you Aunt Mary and look to the day I see you again.

God has called you home..
Your body you leave behind..
Your spirit is now on a journey,
and heaven you are sure to find..
Your life has been a blessing,
to all those you know and love..
We will be remembering you with a smile,
as you embrace your new home above..
Rest in peace my beautiful God mother..
My love to you I send..
Know that someday I will see you,
when my life here has come to an end..
Until we meet again..
Our love will always be..
Forever you will be in my heart,
I'll take you everywhere with me..
Rest in peace my God mother.. Rest in peace..
