To Those I Love

If I should ever leave you whom I love
To go along the Silent Way, grieve not,
Nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk
Of me as if I were beside you there.
(I’d come—I’d come, could I but find a way!
But would not tears and grief be barriers?)
And when you hear a song or see a bird
I loved, please do not let the thought of me
Be sad…for I am loving you just as
I always have…You were so good to me!
There are so many things I wanted still
To do—so many things to say to you…
Remember that I did not fear…It was
Just leaving you that was so hard to face…
We cannot see beyond…But this I know:
I loved you so—‘twas heaven here with you!

Mark and I are so blessed to be "adopted" by Granny Mona. I am so glad to have gotten a chance to visit with her in March, when she gave me more wonderful advices to live by. She said to me, "If you remember anything from Granny, I want you to remember this: When you worry, ask yourself, 'Will my worry change anything?' If it won't, then don't worry about it". Granny Mona will always have a giant space in my heart. Mark and I will miss her greatly.

Mona's great spirit and deep love continue on in each of us. She has made this world a better place for having been here and I know that now she is off to experience the great wonders of the next. Via con dios, Mona.

I loved Mona and Al just like gradparents. When Al died I was so sad. Mona was so strong and somehow I just new they would be together again. I know they are now. I have cut Monas hair for so many years now and I have the cutest memory. Al was playing Santa at the mall where I work. He used to bring candy canes to me and the other girls at my shop. He used to ask me if I could give him a better haircut and I told him of course I could.And so I started cutting his hair. Mona decided she better check me out and the next thing I knew, I was cutting her hair. I feel so lucky to have had them in my life. I will truly miss Mona, her beautiful curly hair and wonderful smile. I'm so glad I will still see Bev, lucky for me, I cut her hair too. Love to all the family, Barb

There are so many beautiful memories written on these pages. They are all true, I'm sure. I can hear you laughing when I tell you that my fondest memory of my times spent with you is... frozen grapes.

Be at peace and know that I love you,
