She is Gone

We can shed tears that she is gone
or we can smile because she has lived.

We can close our eyes and pray that she'll come back
or we can open our eyes and see all she's left.

Our hearts can be empty because we can't see her
or we can be full of the love she shared.

We can turn our backs on tomorrow and live in yesterday
or we can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

We can remember her and only that she's gone
or we can cherish her memory and let it live on.

We can cry and close our minds, be empty and turn our back or we can do what she'd want: smile, open our eyes, love and go on.

I am very sorry for the loss of my aunt Flora.  I will always remember her as a very jolly person. She and mom would get together and laugh a lot.  She was so good to my mom, and good for her.  She will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Florie's passing.  She was of great help and comfort to me in the care and passing of my mom, Cora Mossman.  I have the fondest memories of her always warm and welcoming home and her caring attitude.
