For Brenda

~~~  for Brenda ( Feb. 15,1951 - Mar.24,2013) ~~~

 An angel got her wings today
She's leaving us behind
So to Our Lord we will pray
A better place she'll find
With others of her kind

An angel got her wings today
Her pain is now forgot
Though from this place she's gone away
From our hearts, she's not
For she was loved a lot

I'll miss her laugh and her smile
I'll miss the fun we had
Though I'll grieve for awhile
I'll try to be brave, not sad
For one of the dearest friends I've had

    I thought of you this morning... wondering how you are coping... and found this beautiful, honest poem. Friends can be family and family can become friends. Love sent, so sorry, hon. Sending light your way. xox Cyndi

    I can feel your pain, and I am very much with you on this one. I lost my best friend and his wife a couple of years back. I still miss them sooo much. Still, I feel blessed for having had two such friends.
