    Dedicated to the Memory of Missionary Florence Hagler who departed this life Sunday January 6, 2002.



    Transition to new life has taken place
    As you say goodbye to the sufferings of yesterday
    God has taken you and presented you with a mansion
    That has been prepared just for you
    Reward for your labor
    Fulfillment of a promise made
    You have received what you have so longed worked for
    To be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord
    Now life truly begins
    Rest Grandmother in the bosom of the Lord
    For he is all you have ever needed
    Your journey is over
    You have fought a good fight
    You have finished your course
    You have kept the faith
    And you have received your crown
    That has been prepared for thee
    Until we see each other again

    My condolences Bishop, to you and Watcher.

    This is a beautiful peace. I think it's wonderful, says so much,
    when we can embrace death as we do life. Simply beautiful.

    My prayers are with you both.

    Much Love poet to you and yours.
