I cried when you passed away.I still cry today. Although I loved you dearly, I couldn't make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke my heart to prove to me that he only takes the best.
I love you Mom!!

Thinking of you mom.
My Mother seems so far away from me,
On that beautiful white shore across the sea.
Yet I remember love's soft glow upon her face,
And the feel of her touch and tender embrace.

When I am weary from the burdens I've borne,
And the path is unclear and I feel so forlorn,
I remember her loving support was always near,
And her advice made the path ahead seem clear.

When I feel there is no one who seems to care,
Or when the heartache seems too hard to bear,
I remember how she always stood by my side,
And would tenderly wipe away the tears I cried.

When there are moments of great joy and pride,
And I wish my Mother was standing at my side,
I remember she saw more than I thought I could be,
And know I owe my triumphs to her belief in me.

When I reminisce about the things she used to say,
And I miss her and think she is so far away,
I remember what she gave lives on through me,
And one day I'll see her on the shore across the sea.

When I cry I remember you holding me
and I cry a lot these days
When I laugh it's you I see
You made me laugh in many ways
You shared my hopes, dreams and fears
Today on your birthday it's hard to hold back the tears

I miss you so much mom

Was einer ist, was einer war,
beim Scheiden wird es offenbar.
Wir hören's nicht, wenn Gottes Weise summt;
Wir schaudern erst, wenn sie verstummt

Ich bin eine Cousine von Leoni.Auch wenn ich Elke sehr sehr lange nicht gesehen habe, bin ich traurig über ihren Tod. Ich werde sie immer in Erinnerung behalten.

"Was man tief in seinem Herzen besitzt,
kann man nicht durch den Tod verlieren."

Die Erinnerung an Elke ist ein Fenster
durch das ich Sie sehen kann,
wann immer ich will.

In tiefer Traurigkeit

The Fallen Limb
A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.
