Goodbye and God Bless To A Dear Sister

The  machines  murmured and  slowly  stop their pings

As her  soul, finally  at  peace was  released  and  found it’s  wings.

After months  of  pain  and  strain she  was  free  to  run and laugh  again.

I hope  you  are  back  with  your  true love and  dancing  to  a sweet refrain.


God  Bless  you  sister  dear

I shall miss  you  so,  yet still feel  you near.

The wonderful  times  you have given me  are

Memories  I  shall never  forget. You are  next  to me not  afar.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

    Blessed be, sister-mine… As you see, grief shared is lessened thereby, making it bearable if not entirely welcome…. Know we all share your feeling, and will be here when you need…

      Dear Jean thank you for your kind words, she leaves a huge hole in all our lives but even though she has left her shell, broken and tired out as it was, she is here and always will be in mine and all the family’s hearts. Thank you again. xxxxx

    I’m so sorry, Willow. It’s a comfort to know she is no longer in pain, I’m sure. However, I also know that you will miss her for a long, long time. I’ve lost three brothers.

    Thinking of you and sending hugs and peaceful thoughts your way.
