    In Memory Poem

    “I’ll Be There”

    You ask me to stay, if
    Only for one more day.
    I wish I could, but it’s time for me
    to go.

    Please don’t cry, for
    I could never really
    leave you.

    Close your eyes, feel my
    warm embrace, my kiss upon
    your brow. Don’t worry, I’ll
    always be here.

    As the spring rain softly falls,
    the trees begin to bud and the
    flowers begin to bloom, I’ll
    be there.

    As the summer breeze cools you,
    and the children laugh and
    play, I’ll be there.

    As the leaves begin to turn their
    bright wondrous colors, I’ll
    be there.

    As the snow gently falls,
    covering the earth in
    a soft blanket of
    white, I’ll be there.

    Look into my
    grandchildren’s eyes,
    see them smile,
    hear them laugh,
    I’ll be there.

    So cry now, if you must, but
    remember your tears are for
    you, not for me.

    I’ve gone home to live with
    God, and one day soon I’ll be
    standing at Heaven’s gates, my
    arms opened wide to welcome
    you home, where we’ll all be
    together again

    In Honor of my Mother


    Although I cannot see you. I feel your presence near.

    I will hold you close to memory. Till I drop my very last tear.

    So sleep well with the angels. And your golden heart let rest.

    Although our hearts are broken. We know God took the very best.

    So dance beyond those golden gates. And join your loving daughter and son.

    I’ll see you when I’m sleeping. And pray for you to come.

    And although this pain is painful. And I don’t want to let you go.

    I’ll wait for death to take me. So we can together someday glow.

    Until that day I’ll close my eyes and see your smiling face.

    I’ll lock you up inside my heart. Until we again embrace.

    So rest now my loving mom. I’ll never forget how much you have done.

    Until my hand meets yours once again.

    Sleep now in the sun.

    Death takes the body. God takes the soul.
    Our minds holds the memories. Our hearts
    keep the love. Our faith lets us know we will meet again.

    Mom I love you always and forever.
    Your loving daughter Brenda

  12. Bonnie Curran on December 13, 2018 at 11:28 pm

    You were always there fore me. You were the best almost mother in law I ever had and I loved you like a mother and you loved me like a daughter. I will forever remember your love and no frills advice, you gave me a home when I needed shelter and let me stay as long as I needed, until we meet again my sweet friend may you rest easy with your loved ones on the other side. Love to Brenda, Donna and Pic, John and Justin we are so sorry.

    Wish I had been able to pay my respects today. I am so happy that Ryleigh and Quinn got to have a great Nana that they will always remember, they are very lucky. I will never forget how she would light up when she saw the girls. Love and prayers to the entire family. May you rest in peace Alice.

  16. Donna Rauicoppo on March 13, 2019 at 2:07 pm

    Mom, I miss you everyday or every moment. My life feels so so empty without you here with me. I know you at rest now and in heaven with all your loved ones. I miss you and I hope you hear me talking to you everyday. Life is so different without you. I feel lost a lot. Mom I love you so much and that will never change. I can’t wait til I’m with you again. No one can replace you,my mother. My mom was a very good mother. She was a good person and every one loved her. My mom is my hero!!! I hope I can be as strong as my mom was when she was here. Love you so much Mom.
