In Celebration of a Life Well Lived...

Her Journey

Don't think of her a gone away,
her journey's just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting,
from the sorrow and the tears.
In a place of warmth and comfort,
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today,
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living,
in the hearts of those she touched.
For nothing loved is ever lost,
and she was loved so much.

In Loving Memory of our precious Doralee.
November 5, 1942 ~ June 13, 2011

Today is our special day set aside
to celebrate so many wonderful memories.
Her love that knew no boundaries...
Her always warm and welcoming heart...
Her wise and giving spirit...
Doralee touched so many of us with her kindness.
And now her presence is so very missed,
but her spirit will live on within each of us always.

I wish I could have been there but duty called. That woman never stopped amazing me. She was everything that I wish I could be as a mother and a wife. She was truly an angel on earth. I will never forget her and she will be greatly missed!
