I can’t begin to tell you the emptiness I feel everytime I walk through the door at work and she is not there…..Marjice will always hold a special place in my heart…She was special to all of us…she gave so freely of herself to all staff and residents…she looked out for everyone…espically the animals…they were the highlight of her life….and they miss her so…cherrish her memories and there won’t be a day that goes by that I won’t think of her…I was so glad I got to see her in her final hours and to tell her that I loved her…life doesn’t see fair sometimes and this is one of those times…but I keep telling myself she is FREE from pain FLYING HIGH WITH THE ANGELS…you may be gone my dear friend, but you will never be forgotten….Love Corina XOXOXO
A Poem I found and wanted to share with you….
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see,
I took his hand when I heard his call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to Love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found my peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys,
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
O yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undo grief.
Lift up your hears, and peace to thee
God wanted me now, he has set me FREE…
