When someone passes away,
we ache, but we go on;
Our dear departed would want us to heal
after they are gone.
Grief is a normal way to mend
the anguish in our hearts;
we need time to remember and time to mourn,
before the recovery starts.
Let's come together to recuperate,
as we go through this period of sorrow;
Let's help each other, with tender care
to find a brighter tomorrow
We gratefully acknowledge with sincere appreciation your comforting expressions and sympathy rendered through prayers, phone calls, and cards. Your thoughtfulness and concern has truly lifted our spirits and provided comfort. We give it all the God. No more sickness and pain, Morris, you can walk around Heaven all day.
