Maureen and Family,

Thoughts and prayers are with you from our family to each of you , may you find the peace and comfort your hearts need in this difficult time, There is never any easy thing to say to someone when they lose a loved one, especially a mother or grandmother, but I would like to share with you a poem that was sent to me when I lost my mother just a few years ago..

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into the gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul’s sweet flight

I am at peace, my soul’s at rest
There is no need for tears
For with your love I was blessed
For all those many years

There is no pain, I suffer not
The fear now is all gone
Put now those things of your thoughts
In your memory live on

Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not my strife
Please do not dwell upon my death
But celebrate my life

With Sympathy and heartfelt condolences,

Mark and Lana Kendall
Orlando, Florida
