  44. prayers for this family

  45. Ashley, I hope and pray that the following poem written by my mother in the 70’s will give you some comfort. Hugs and prayers to you and your family.
    Death is a warm blanket
    That closes my eyes and puts me to sleep.
    I do not fear death,
    But welcome it as a long lost friend,
    Lost since the time of my beginning.

    Death only makes me sad
    For those I leave behind.
    My heart aches now for their hurting.

    When I pass over to be with my Maker,
    Worry, pain and sadness will forsake me,
    And my soul will be at peace.
    So do not unhappily mourn me,
    Be glad for my release.

    By Fran Scott
