    Rest little angel rest.
    For you fought a good fight, you ran your race; you had so much work to do.

    You were a mother to your children, their first teacher, and you continued to be that throughout your life.
    You were a grandmother; you instilled wisdom and strength so that your knowledge would carry on.
    You were a great-grandmother, a symbol of peace and patience when the parents didn’t know how to be.

    You answered God’s call to be a Mother in the church where your physical guidance met up with spiritual guidance so that you could be a mother to God’s children in God’s house.
    You were a friend, you inspired and encouraged others to keep on, even when you yourself wanted to give up.

    We understand you were tired and God knew it first,
    So rest little angel rest.

    I am sorry to read of your loss. Your loved one sounds like she was quite a wonder. This was such a beautiful ode.

    Thank you my sistas. This is a poem written to the memory of my grandmother-in-law who treated me like a blood relative. I do miss her greatly. However, I am not still in mourning over her as much, I lost her three days before Thankgiving in 2003. Thank you for your sentiments greatly appreciated.

    Thank you gempis for your support. And thank you Queen, she made more than an impression she taught me how to cook! I married her grandson and couldn't hardly boil water! but I can go now thanks to Madear. Thanks for the love.
