Condolence & Memory Journal

It hurts me that you aren't here anymore, but I know you are no longer in pain. You were the most fun, loving, and positive person I knew. Your personality was so energetic and up-beat. You were truly one of a kind. I love and admire how much you loved your family and bringing everyone together.
I love you, and I will always cherish you and all the memories you have given me. I will forever be thankful to have been able to call you grandma.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die... God Bless my family. I love you forever Karen. Sylvia and I are heartbroken over this loss and wish you all the best.

God Bless you and your family and friends of this time of sorrow. Our prayers are with you all. A prayer for you.

To Your

Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,
Ever this day,
be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.

Larry, I was so sad to hear about Karen. She was such a wonderful person. She showed such love for my kids when Shirley babysat them. She shared her pool, her beauty secrets, and lots about life.. We will always keep Karen's spirit alive with our wonderful memories..

How I will miss your hardy laugh, vivacious smile, and love of life and family. You were kind enough to spend time with mom and celebrate her birthdays. You will be so missed and we are so blessed to have had you in our lives. Angels wings and God's grace will watch over you now. Thank you for being my cousin.
