give thanks for her journey to the end

Give thanks for the way the roses bloomed when they haven't bloomed that way in years

For the gifts that made her smile and reminded her that she was thought about and loved  

For the way family came together and had moments to smile and laugh in between the tears

For the signs that appeared providing comfort on this unknown journey

And for the way she rose up with the sun

The journey has not been easy
Forever she will be missed
But she has surrounded each of us with love and kindness
We have one another to lean on
We have grown closer together
And savor our memories of her
For she is within each of us
She has taught us so much
And will forever be our guide
We give thanks for the memories we have
The moments that were shared
And the love that she infused with us
