She is gone

You can shed tears

that she is gone,

Or you can smile

because she lived.

You can close your eyes

and pray that she will come 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 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 would want, smile, open

your eyes, love, and go on.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Red Deer Hospice Society 99 Arnot Ave. Red Deer, AB. T4R 3S6. The family wish to extend our deepest gratitude to the Red Deer Hospice and a special thanks to Dr. Nav Rattan for their kindness during this most difficult time. Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, January 17 at the Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall 11 Bennett Street at 3 pm.
