Mom chose a few words for her family and friends.
When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me.
I want no tears or gloom filled room, why cry for a soul set free
Miss me a little but not too long and not with your head bowed low
Remember the love we all shared, miss me but let me go.
Make the most of this moment of life that’s here
For this moment is now, you can’t count on more
The future may hold better or worse
But now is the moment of life that is sure.
Do it now, not tomorrow, not sometime.
For now is the time to do what you should do
Now is the time for living your life
And now is the time for you to be you
Rest in Peace Mom, Granma, Great GrandmaObituary
