A Beautiful Angel

On Saturday, August 8, 2009, My beautiful Grandma Rhea returned to our Heavenly Father.
I don't even have the words to explain how empty I feel inside. I have never lost anyone that has been so special to me and been such a big part of my life. She was truly the most giving and caring person that I have ever known. I want to thank her for all that she has taught me and for giving me a Mother that is truly remarkable. I hope that I can be as strong, compassionate and DIVINE as the two of them. She had this way of stealing a piece of your heart, with a smile that would make a bad day good. We loved her so much! I will miss her everyday, but I know that she is watching over us. She is our Angel!

I thought I saw her face today
In the sparkle of the morning sun.
And then I heard the angel say
“Her work on earth is done.”
I thought I heard her voice today
Then laugh her hearty laugh.
And then I heard the angel say
“There’s peace little one at last.”
I thought I felt her touch today
In the breeze that rustled by.
And then I heard the angel say
“The spirit never dies.”
I thought that she had left me
For the stars so far above.
And then I heard the angel say
“She left you with her love.”
I thought that I would miss her
And never find my way.
And then I heard the angel say
“She’s with you every day.”
