When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind, I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. And when you feel the gentle breeze...or the wind upon your face, that's me giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.

cont'd...After my Oma passed away, despite the sadness I felt, I couldn’t help be happy to know that someone else and their family was going to have an opportunity to experience the Stedman Community Hospice.

Dear Oma, I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with you before you left this world. I miss you more than words can say, but when I look up into the sky and see the sun shinning bright I know you're in Heaven looking down at me from above. Memories of your love and laughter warm my soul. *You are my angel* Till we meet again in Heaven, Your Veronica (Veronli) Love you xo
