Mima had an amazing sense of humor, loving heart and lived life to the fullest.

We all love you so very much Mima. You'll truly be missed more than you'll ever know, so rest in peace my dear loved one and thank you for everything you've done. We pray God has given you the crown you truly won.


Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call; I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work and play. Tasks left undone must stay that way; I found that place at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill with remembered joy. A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss, ah yes, these things, I too will miss. But not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savoured much; Good friends, good time, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seems all to brief; don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.

So fly with the angels our beautiful Mima always loved and in our hearts.
