Poem: Broken chain link
We little knew the day that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories.
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one
the chain will link again.
- Ron Tranmer
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
A Daughter's Promise
BY Allie B. Quaglieri
Every time I smile,
Every time I sigh,
I think of your face,
And a tear escapes my eye.
You were my world,
My inspiration and my heart,
But when you left me,
I thought I would fall apart.
You were my best friend,
My one true confidant,
And that's not all you were.
You were also my mom.
I didn't want to live without you,
But you would have wanted me to,
And if there's anyone I want to make happy,
That anyone is you.
I would have given anything to have you back,
But I know now that it was meant to be,
For you are still watching from up there,
And I know you're watching me.
I'll make you proud, Mom.
I'm going to fulfill your wish.
You're going to see me and smile.
That's a daughter's promise
To Crystal Roberts-Ferris,
Your sisters are thankful for everything that you did to care for our beloved Mother. Your care a dedication did not go unnoticed. We thank you for always being there for our mother day in and day out.
A Prayer for the Caregiver
by Bruce McIntyre
Unknown and often unnoticed, you are a hero nonetheless.
For your love, sacrificial, is God at his best.
You walk by faith in the darkness of the great unknown,
And your courage, even in weakness, gives life to your beloved.
You hold shaking hands and provide the ultimate care:
Your presence, the knowing, that you are simply there.
You rise to face the giant of disease and despair,
It is your finest hour, though you may be unaware.
You are resilient, amazing, and beauty unexcelled,
You are the caregiver and you have done well!
To Naomi My friend and the rest of the bereaved family.... My Deepest Sympathy
I do send you all my deepest sympathy although it
Just doesn't seem like enough.
I know how your grief must burden you,
and during this time has got to be so rough.
Please try to believe in each of your hearts, that God will not allow your pain to last forever, and that the sadness will soon lighten up, you'll start seeing clearer and clearer with each passing day, You will start finding yourselves feeling better and better each day.
Realizing that Momma isn't gone completely she is an Angel watching you now, and oh how she's proud of each of you. As the days and nights pass , you will be looking in expectation of your memories where you focus on the good because it outweighs the bad. Don't allow Satan to trip any of you up burdened by tears of shame, regret, or loss, but cherish all the happy times you had with Mother, Mom the Boss....My heartfelt Love, and encouragement to you all as you go through this time. Stay close together, and don't let anything nor anyone separate your love for one another. Sisters bond together in UNITY as Christ wants us to in the Body of Christ. Love you Naomi and I will continue to lift you all up in the Precious Name of Jesus our savior.... Love Marla Facey
