The angels gathered near your side for they knew the pain and suffering you were going through. We thought about so many things as we held your hand. Oh how we wished that you were strong and happy once again, but your eyes were looking homeward to the place beyond the sky where Jesus held his hand outstretched, it was time to say goodbye.
We struggled with our selfish thoughts for we wanted you to stay so we could walk and talk like we did yesterday. But Jesus knew the answer, and we knew you loved him, so we gave you life’s greatest gift.
The gift of letting you go.
We will forever love you with all our hearts Mom.
