ALSO, on my Mom's refrigerator, she had this poem.  We have decided to include it on the Memorial Card that will be given out at her Service on Friday. 

Don't Grieve For Me
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path that was lit for me.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I've found that peace at close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life?s been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times,
a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
Don't grief for me, for now I'm free.

I'm deeply grateful for the outpouring of love and support that I have received as my Mom was going through her illness.  
We'll miss her everyday and she will remain in our hearts forever.

with warmth, love and appreciation,
