My hero's fight is over and she rests in the arms of peace. "...gonna take me up to the Spirit in the Sky". Go rest high on that mountain far from the pain below. Our love will be eternal and we will meet again. Love Forever; Laura G., Mama, David G.

Celtic Blessing
May the roads rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

Though I did not know Dianne personally, I am honored as a veteran, and as a retired VA Chaplain where Dianne died under the care of Hospice, to officiate at her service today. May the Lord be with each of you in Dianne's family as you "walk through the valley of the shadow of death" I am praying for you.
