RIP GRANDMA 11/14/12

She hugs and kisses her loved ones at Heaven's gate,
Then shares with them the joy of her new found fate.
She goes on and on about the ones she left behind,
It's going to take a while, because she was Grams to all mankind.

Now God bestows the heavenly rewards upon her head,
As always, she shares them with others instead.
She now receives the deed to her new heavenly mansion,

To make room for all of us, she's already planning the expansion.

Heaven's newest garden is now in bloom,
She started working on it, as soon as she left that room.
Not being able to work in the soil now for some time,
I am sure her smile is brighter than summer's sunshine.

So Grams wished for all to understand,
That God is the key to the eternal land.
If you choose Him before it's too late,
Grams will meet you at Heaven's gate.
