    Losing a Grandmother or a Mother is soo difficult!!!

    I wish I would have gotten to know Mary. She sounds like a wonderful woman.

    I just left my first ever post on this site last week for the loss of my Uncle Harold Hietala.

    I sure hope this does not become too routine.

    Too bad we have to die, but at least we have the memories that will stay for life.

    Unjust conselation; thank God for the memories.

    Sorry for your loss.

    This day I know such agony
    How it weighs upon my heart
    The pain I feel, is all so real
    From here you now must part

    My thoughts of you, a loving mom
    Who’s touched me deep within
    Thy pain you leave….once no tomorrow
    My sorrow now begins

    How sad I’ll be to know this loss
    For mother I love you
    The tears shall fall upon my face
    Our memories seeping through

    Your loving touch, I’ve known since birth
    In heart, I knew my place
    Your kindness proved how much you cared
    In arms your love embraced

    You’ve loved me truly, as I loved you
    And this love had never waned
    Your selfless being I’ve always known
    In hearts our love remained

    Oh mother dear, to you I say
    I’m grateful deep inside
    For you have loved me through these years
    From the place where love resides

    You are an Angel, a loving soul
    Who’s made my skies so blue
    A gift from God, to know and cherish
    So blessed was I for you

    But now dear mother, your time has come
    Though woeful, I shall pray
    You meet your Father….our loving God
    Within his arms to sway

    Through my tears, I must rejoice
    As God shows you your path
    And I let go….unselfishly
    With memories that I have

    Find great comfort in peace bestowed
    Let go thy pains of flesh
    To find the love of others passed
    A universal quest

    Befriend the stars….your family
    Who shine in God’s abode
    And live a life, all worries gone
    No finer love is known

    I hear the Angels, how sweet their song
    To them you’ve brought delight
    Their melody so full of grace
    As you walk into thee Light

    I‘ll miss you mother, all days to come
    And for me, I know you’ll wait
    The time shall come….again to meet
    Our love at Heavens Gate

    ~Alts ❤️😢
