|Let the memory of Blanche be with us forever|
In tears I saw you sinking, and watched you pass away.
My heart was almost broken, I wanted you to stay.
But when I saw you sleeping, so peaceful, free from pain,
how could I wish you back with me to suffer that again.
It broke my heart to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of me went with you, the day God took you home.
If Roses grow in Heaven, Lord please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I miss her, and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.
Remembering her is easy, I do it every day.
I think of her as living, in the hearts of those she touched.
For nothing loved is ever lost, and she was truly loved so much.
"The following quote of Matthew Kelly, is taken from "The Rhythm of Life" - "The good we do is never lost; it never dies. In other people, in other places, in other times - the good we do lives on forever." Aunt Blanche's goodness is living on. God's Blessings, Mary Jo! Love you!"
"Happy Birthday Blanche,
We all miss you and think of you all the time."
Happy Birthday... Yes, I am thinking of you today and remembering you. I still find myself wanting to pick up the phone and call you; and then I am reminded that I can't. Are you someplace where you can see me? Will you give me a sign? I want to know that you are existing and at peace someplace. I love you, Mom."
"Happy Birthday Blanche, I know your having a joyous day in heaven."
""What the heart gives away is never lost...it is kept in the hearts of others." Aunt Blanche will always have a special place in my heart for all she gave with her heart. Love you forever!"
