Let the memory of Della be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Della Sims, . We will remember her forever.                                                     

She Is Gone 
  
    You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile because she has lived. 
  
    You can close your eyes and
pray that she comes back or you can open your eyes and see all she has left. 
  
    Your heart can be empty because you can't see her or you can be full of the love you shared. 
  
    You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. 
  
    You can remember her and only that she is gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. 
  
    You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back  Or you can do what she'd want:   smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
 
 
  Author B. J. Morbitzer
 
 
  ...For I will turn their mourning into joy and will comfort them and make them rejoice after their sorrow.
 
  Jeremiah 31:13
