February 6, 2020

To my Dear Cousine Leonne Gaston which I shared so many memories in Haiti and the US, it's great pain and sorrow I am accepting your departure to Heaven. At our last conversation, you requested the picture of tante Marthe and yourself but God had his plan before I could bring it to you. I am sharing the same poem I had on her obituary since you two were so close.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

I saw this poem and couldn't stop thinking of you.


Author Unknown

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye.
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill.

It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

Her eyes gave wonder, her heart gave passion, her hands gave love. Her work created greatness. Her smile gave assurance. Her words gave truth. She was a lady of hospitality of elegance of stance. She stood in her own lane & maintain that with integrity. She was who her mother raised _ a legacy of worth.....she was worthy of all bestowed upon her...she never asked for more than what she gave...she just expected better for you...all she ever seen was love..I know what I shared with her this is not the day for declaration of that. I know I wouldn't be such a lady if not be for her even with flaws..she mold me ...even with broken parts I'm still what she molded...she created a love that spread from country to coast...I didn't lose her I the world gained her..God will use her again...her power her work is too great..to give up mankind for purpose...her voyage can only live again and again
