For Melinda

Yesterday has come and gone;
Tomorrow morning soon will dawn.
Tomorrow’s tears will freeze with the frost;
Today is now- and I am lost.
God will help me find my way—
Treasures in my heart will stay...
The hours I have spent with you;
The happy times-the sad times, too.
I remember everything it seems—
But now I can hold you only in my dreams.
But I will hold you again someday;
Angels never fly away.
God bless you, Angel
And do take care—
...and someday I’ll be with you there.
❤️ Trish

Dear family of my precious friend, She loved you most and spoke of you, updating me of how you all were with this or that. I loved the way she wore her hats as wife, mom, grandma, friend ... You are in my thoughts and prayers. The Lord sees your pain and loss and will comfort your broken hearts. Amelia
