Her Journey’s Just Begun
Don’t think of her as gone away
her journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched…
for nothing loved is ever lost
and she was loved so much.
Frances your the oldest of seven and at one time or the other been like the second mom to us you are so loved and will be missed dearly rest in peace with mama, daddy, David and Marie I love you♥
Francis, it’s heart wrenching to know that we will no longer get to be together on this Earth any longer… Even though we we’re miles apart we knew we could at least talk on the phone… Clyde and I will miss you but we Respect you for Reaching out and Taking Jesus by His Hand when he came to take you to Heaven… We Love You Forever…

There’s a special place in all of our hearts for our mothers, just like there’s a special place in every mother’s heart for her children.
