A gentle wind blew across the land,
Reaching out to take a hand.
For in the wind the angels came
Calling out a mother’s name.
Left behind, her family’s tears,
Loving memories of the years
Of joy and love, a life well spent,
And now to God a mother sent.
On an angel’s wings, a heavenly light,
The journey home towards the light.
To those who weep, a life is gone,
But in God’s home ‘tis but the dawn.
A funeral service was held in Eagle Hill on Saturday, January 13, 2018.
