To my husband, (The love of my life), Thank you for your endless love, and choosing me on the bus to school, that will help me through each day, thank you for all the memories that will be kept in my heart and never fade away as time goes on. You are the man I loved, I was so proud to be your wife and mother of your children, everyday in some small way, I will take time to celebrate your life as long as memories last, you will be forever my love. Your loving wife, EVA.
Daddy (Poppy) We’ll always remember that special smile, that caring heart, that warm embrace, you always gave us, you being there for mom and us, through good and bad times, no matter what the case, we’ll always remember you Dad because there will never be another one to replace you in our hearts, and the love we will always and forever have for you. We love you, your children.
“I’m Free” Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free. I’m following the path God laid for me. I took His hand and when I heard Him call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day to laugh, to love, to work or play. Task, left undone must stay that way, I found that place at the close of the day. My parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy, a friendship shared, a laugh a kiss. Be not burden with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow, my life has been full, I savored much, good friends, good times, a loved ones touch, perhaps my time seems all too brief, lift up your heart and share with me. God wanted me now, He set me FREE.
