We recently had a contest to celebrate our 5000th fan where fans entered in memorial poems to celebrate the life of a dearly departed. This contest was won by Yvonne with a very touching poem to her sister - congrats Yvonne and thank you so much for sharing.
For my sis Elaine 5/25/56-7/31/08...when she passed away. She LOVED hummingbirds!!!
Angel on earth, heart of gold;
Life too soon taken, stories untold.
You will never be forgotten for all that you've done;
Always unselfish, never turning away anyone.
Second mother to my children, never a need;
Looked out for others without any greed.
"Auntie" to your beloved nephews and nieces;
Gave ALL your love in little pieces.
Hardworking woman, strong in every way;
Giving up your time to please others everyday.
You've always done for others all your life;
Listened intently without any strife.
Heart of gold, Goddess to all;
There for everyone when they would fall.
Words of wisdom, never afraid to speak out;
Loved all family and friends without a doubt.
The foundation of our family, never to forget your name;
Keep us in your heart, as we will do the same.
Don't be afraid, you've done all you can here;
Go be with our Father who will hold you near.
We all love you, more than words can ever say;
And we'll meet you in heaven, to collect our broken hearts someday.
Love, your sis Yvonne
