Blanche Vega
  • 82 years old
  • Date of birth: Sep 17, 1927
  • Date of passing: Mar 31, 2010
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.
