She would have said this to all those she left behind:

I’m no longer by your side, but there’s no need to weep;

I’ve left sweet recollections, I’m hoping you would keep.

Eternal joy and memories stay in our hearts forever,

Strengthening our special bond that parting cannot sever.

Now it’s time to journey on, So let your faith be strong,

For I am in a better place…I’m home where I belong.

And if times of loneliness Bring sorrow and dismay,

Don’t despair, for I am there…Just a Memory Away.
