God saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you And whispered ,come to me. With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away. And though we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He Only Takes The Best

Seconds pass as hours as my mind wanders, Sitting beside you, sharing your air, I inhale slowly attempting to end your despair As the sound of your voice rings in the air; a sound I wish to always keep near Your strength empowering, as frown lines wrinkle your brow Each line etching my heart, a pain indescribable Selfishly I want your hand in mine always while simultaneously I pray for your wings Although so unfair, my past path was made clear, Seconds minutes hours we shared Thankful to have been birthed by you, I will forever love you and hold you tightly in my heart ~ Nisha
Special Memories from Youngest There were times as a child she would tell me things I didn’t understand. As I grow older I find myself with vibrant memories of leaving Mt Zion in her Tahoe, heading to IHOP after church. My Gam was a smart, humble, beautiful and courageous woman. The irony of the fact that your best days can also be your worst days will forever remain with me; a true and constant reminder to stay humble. You did ENOUGH, Love you and see you again. ~ Quentin, Analysia, Kairo
To Make You Proud Early years to old age, you stayed consistent never strayed Corpus Christi to Disneyland you gave us love with open hands “Take care of them babies like a man” Your words and values implanted inside my head; I’ll make you proud I love you Gam………. ~Brandon
I’m Free Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free. I’m following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard Him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship started, a laugh, a kiss, ah yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.

  2. Linda was my supervisor at the CFS, we bumped heads but became good friends . Linda was a power house of knowledge . She knew her job and everything she did was for her kids and family. To me she was a Warrior. As her health began to fail, she jumped into overdrive. She fought everyday, never felt sorry for herself and took on the challenges that was ahead of her. Rest easy my friend , tell your sister Jean hello and your work down here is not over. You are now an Angel 😇, looking over your loved ones.
