I just learned that this afternoon god took you home to one of his best angels to make u feel safe and fill the void in ur heart u have desperately tried to fill here on earth. I may lay n my bed of sorrow tonight but will wake and rejoice for I had what time I did with u here on earth and know that one day we can cheer again. I hope god has given u the serenity in heaven ur demons would not give u here on earth. But now u can rest and feel safe and lay in the arms of ur mother who her herself is not for gotten and remember everyday with tears of joy joy of memories we once shared. God felt u needed peace and love and to feel no more pain so he brought a mother home her beautiful child to love and hold and let u know everything is gonna be alright. R.I.P aunt Donnie although u were truely loved and will be missed deeply by the many people whose hearts u touched we lift u to god now where u can feel at home and we will see u again one day. Til then Smile cause we smile with u love because we love with u and rest because we live for u. We Love u god has tooken home another of his best creations. I miss u too Maryann lobdell slinger u were my heart and my reason I thank god everyday he gave u 10 more mins to spend with me that cold december night and ur last 3mins with my daddy before he took u home . My heart is full of love for my family but feels so empty without u I miss u so much and apologize for the sins u see I needed u then as much as I do now but the love u gave me I will hold deep in my heart never letting ur love go. I'm glad u have ur baby girl home with u but I wish u all could of just stayed here. RIP mawmaw aunt Donnie my two uncles and two grandpas may god love and watch over u as he did here on earth.
