Jeanne and family –

No words could ever be right to express how I feel about the loss of your Mom. She was one incredible person and has touched my life and Madison’s life in such a special way. She will always remain in our hearts. Our deepest sympathy goes out to you, Bruce, your father, Rick and his family, Vicki and her family and Linda and her family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Carol and Madison

Jeanne,

My prayers and thoughts are with you during this time of great sorrow. Both of my parents are deceased. But there is nothing that compares to the loss of your mother. I can truly sympathize with you, because I lost my mom to cancer 23 years ago.

Life will be tough for a while for you. That is to be expected. As women, we often feel that we must be strong. For as long as you need, allow yourself to grieve.

There are no words …what can I say?

At last her sweet soul winged its way

To peace and freedom in the sky

Where never again will she suffer or cry.

It’s all part of God’s great plan …

Which remains a mystery to man.

We cannot understand His ways

Nor can we count our earthly days.

But who are we to question and doubt?

God knoweth well what He’s about;

He knew she longed to “go to sleep”

Where only angels, a vigil keep.

The pain of living grew too great

No longer could she stay and wait;

She did not want to leave you, dear,

But she had finished her work down here.

So she closed her eyes and when she awoke,

These are the words the Master spoke …

“Welcome, dear child, you are Home at last,

And now the burden of living is past.”

“There’s work for you in My Kingdom, dear

And you are needed and wanted here.”

So weep not, she has just gone on ahead,

Don’t think of her as being dead.

She’s out of sight for a little while,

And you’ll miss her touch and her little smile,

But you know she is safe in the home above

Where there is nothing but Peace and Love.

And, surely, you would not deny her peace …

And you’re glad that she has found release.

Think of her there as a soul that is free,

And Home at last, where she wanted to be.

Vic, I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I had an opportunity to visit with her a couple weeks ago while I was visiting my father-in-law, George Smith. Smitty passed away 2/13/08. Jeanie was with your Mom and Dad. Your Mom was sleeping, but I had a chance to talk with Jeanie. I just learned about your Mom today and it is now 8 p.m. – so I was unable to make it to the funeral home. I will try to make it to the memorial service tomorrow. Please give my love to your family and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Debbie
