"On Angel's Wings by Cralin Hardy

On Angel's Wings you were taken away,
But in my heart you will always stay.
I will hear your whisper in the tallest trees,
Feel your love in the gentle breeze.
And when I find I miss you the most,
Inside our beautiful memories
I will hold you close.
You are an angel watching over me
with the comfort and blessings you bring,
You embrace my heart and hold it close,
Forever on Angel's Wings

I miss you Aunt Leona...you remain always in my heart ...."

"Hi Mom,
Been thinking about you a lot. There seems to be real strong connection right now with you. Some days this is all still very hard that I don't get  your wonderful hugs you would give me. I always think of it when I am going out the door and you would say "Can I have a hug". And I don't hear those words anymore. Some days I just pause at the door just wanting to hear those words again. I have been traveling the world mom. Just like I promised you I would continue to do. But I am sure you know this and are seeing the world right my my side. Just wanted to say I love and miss you. Muah!"

"I had a moment today where I went to say goodbye to a loved one, instead I said, "so long".  It made me smile because it was Leona that told me many years ago that "it's not goodbye, I'll see you again soon".  That's right, Leona... So long, I miss you and I know we will see each other again soon."

"I laughed and cried while watching this beautiful tribute to Leona. I could see her telling a story, enjoying her grand kids, loving her daughters or exuding her gratitude to her life and her God. I know Leona was a believer and there for I also know she is being taken care of. I will miss her very much though. Thank you Leona for coming into my life and loving me as your own. All my love!"
