Her family will miss her immensely.

Her Journeyʼs Just Begun

Donʼt think of her as gone away

Her journey has just begun

Life holds many facets

The earth is only one

Just think of her as resting

From the sorrows and the tears

In a place of warmth and comfort

Where there are no days and years

Think how she must be wishing

That we could know today

How nothing but our sadness

Can really pass away

And think of her as living

In the hearts of

those she touched

For nothing loved is ever lost

And she was loved so much.
