Remember Me

To the Living, I am gone,
To the sorrowful, I will never return;
To the angry, I was cheated.
But to the happy, I am at peace.
To the faithful, I have never left.
Talk to me, and I will hear,
your prayers, they com
fort me,
your laughter makes me laugh,
but don't weep
for me as I have my reward,
I am with the Father and He will never let me perish,
The Lord com
forts me, and longs to comfort you.
So be happy my family and don't despair,
I am in good hands, waiting
for the day when
the Lord calls you to come home.

Vickie was very good at sharing her knowledge of medical situations for those of us that were injured. I met her on a Worker's Comp. forum initially and then in person for the first time at a get together at the Castle in Pa.When a few other friends and I were traveling to Florida, she welcomed us into her home for a nice visit.. She will be missed.
