MAY YOU REST IN PEACE

A beautiful angel is all that is here
Saying O'Lord please leave me here
Not ready to leave but has to go
Wants to go back but God says no
A husband and children
Grandchildren and friends
A meaningful life that suddenly ends
And angel is what she was meant to be
Now think of all that she can see
Watching over her family night and day
Saying I love you in her own special way
In the night we sleep and in the day we cry
While she watches us all from her star in the sky


I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND MISS YOU MORE THEN YOU KNOW



LOVE YOU AGAIN LITTLE GRAMMA

Chris, we are saddened to hear of Flo's passing. She and I spent so many hours just sitting and talking of her "schmooo" and her pomeranians. The world is a quieter and sadder place without her in it.
