In anquish and pain our hears are torn
As a beloved's death we mourn

Remembering a colleague, friend and mother
Lovingly missed by so many other

Yes, today we may cry out
Dear Lord, what's this loss about

Perhaps its so that we can see
By her death she's been set free

No more illness, suffering or pain
She is healed and whole again

Eventhough we may be sad
Remember the blessed life she had

Today we simply make the choice
In loving memory raise our voice

Focussing less on her journey's end
But celebrating a life well spent

ComfortIng family as they shed tears
Remembering all the precious years

Encouraging them to depart with love
For she now lives in Heaven above

An end is brought to life on earth
A new beginning in Heaven is birthed
