Heaven in her eye,
In every gesture dignity and love.

She is Gone,( by Anonymous)

You can shed a tear that she is gone
or you can smile because she lived.

You can close your eyes and pray she'll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she's gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
****************************************************
The past is history. The future, a mystery.
But we will hold dear our memories of her,
her smile, the sound of her laughter...forever.
