"God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered "come to me". With tearful eyes I watched you, and saw you pass away. Although I loved you dearly, I couldn't make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating,... hardworking hands at rest, God broke my heart to prove to me, he only takes the best."

My Mom passed peacefully in her sleep at noon today.
For those who knew of our situation, thank you all for your love & support.

Miss you Mom!

Love
Jan & Family...

Oh Jan,
Such a sweet poem, such a sad loss.
The worst part of growing old is losing our life long loves.
My deepest sympathy.

Jan & family,
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. It seems no matter how old we get; when we lose a parent we still feel like orphans. Grown up orphans---it's that time of our lives.

Remember the good times.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
