Unforgettable...Our Angel Named Betty

Oct 8, 1946...Our Beloved Angel, Betty...Oct 14,1990

October...the anniversary of your birth,
a time of joy because you were born,
October...the anniversary of your death,
a time of unforgettable loss, and still we mourn

Gift-boxed yellow roses...Betty's favorite.  Happy birthday, Sis.
"Remember her as living in the hearts of those she touched, 
for nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much."

A yellow rose for our brown-eyed Betty.

The years have so quickly passed...
Could it really be eleven...
Since God reached out His loving hand
And took you home to heaven?

It seems like only yesterday,  
that mama gave you birth
Your birthdays flew, and you became
  a woman of much worth.

Memories, unforgettable,
of good times that we shared
Linger in my longing heart,
And I still need you here.

They say memories are golden,
Well, maybe that is true;
I'll cherish all the memories,
but what I need is you.

To the ones who loved and lost you,
Your memory will last.
An unforgettable part of 
Our future...present...past.

Little Sister, you are still my encouragement, and my light!
  You are truly "unforgettable", and you live in my heart.

Yellow rose...This bud's for you, lil sister.

If tears could build a stairway
And heartache make a lane;
I'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say goodbye.
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knows why.

My heart still aches in sadness
And secret tears still flow,
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried;
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still;
In my heart you hold a place
No one could ever fill.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same;
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

You'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today;
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.

He Only Takes The Best...poem title graphic.

God saw you getting weaker
And a cure was not to be
So He put His arms around you
And whispered "come to Me"

With tearful eyes we watched you
As we saw you pass away
Although we loved you dearly
He would not make you stay.

God knows you had to leave us,
But you didn't go alone.
For part of us went with you.
The day he took you home.

A loving heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.

He Only Took My Hand poem title graphic.

Last night while I was trying to sleep,
My sister I did hear,
I opened my eyes and looked around,
But she did not appear.

She said, "Sis, you've got to listen,
You've got to understand,
God didn't take me from you,
He only took my hand.

When I called out in pain that day,
The moment that I died,
He reached down and took my hand,
And pulled me to His side.

He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain.
My body was hurt so badly,
I could never be the same.

My search is really over now,
I've found happiness within,
All the answers to my dreams
And all that might have been.

I love you all and miss you so,
And I'll always be nearby.
My body's gone forever,
But my spirit will never die.

  And so, you must all go on,
And live, and understand...
God did not take me from you,
He only took my hand."

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush.

Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
