|Mama on an Easter Sunday beside my bed of lillies - Pat|
To My Family
The time has come to say goodbye
But nothing will ever sever,
The wonderful memories we shared
With a love that will last forever.
Death has dropped the final curtain
And the body separates from the soul,
To soar to that beautiful city
Where the streets are paved with gold.
Look up at night to the sky on high
And pick out a star or two,
Somewhere there along the milky way
I will be looking down at you.
Rejoice now that the time has come
When pain and sorrows are ‘ore.
Rejoice for me that a better home
Waits on that beautiful eternal shore.
(written by Thelma Burke Brady to her children)
