"Our Angel Took Flight"
I MAY BE GONE FROM THIS PLACE, BUT I'M NOT FORGOTTEN. I WILL DWELL IN YOUR HEARTS AND MEMORIES FOREVER. I LEAVE WITH YOU ALL MY PRECIOUS PRICELESS GIFTS. MAY YOU STRENGTHEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. MAY YOU ALWAYS REJOICE IN THE WORD OF GOD. IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW, I'M WALKING THE STREETS OF GOLD. IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW, I'M STANDING TALL AND WHOLE. IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW, YOU KNOW I'VE SEEN HIS FACE. IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW, YOU'D KNOW ALL MY PAIN IS NOW ERASED. IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW..YOU WOULDN'T WANT ME TO EVER LEAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE.
"WE LOVE YOU THEL"
