She finally made it home in time for her Birthday. I am home in heaven, dear ones, Oh, so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty In the everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, Every restless tossing passed. I am now at peace forever, Safely home in heaven at last. There is still work waiting for you, So you must not idly stand. Do it now, while life remaineth, You should rest in God's own land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call you home. Ah, the rapture of that meeting, Oh, the joy to see you home!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! With Lots of Love, Children, Grandkids, Great Grandkids, & Great Great Grandson
