Tribute to My Grandma

( I write this with a heavy heart.......My grandma (My dad's mommma)passed away on June 14........ it has been hard dealing with all the emotions that come with losing someone close to you......... But making this poem helped greatly with my pain and the pain of her Daughter (My aunt) and her son(My dad).....Losing someone really hurts but putting this poem Up is the first step to moving on.........
Debbie Sue (Alexander) Christian may be gone but she will never be forgotten)

The Lord giveth, The Lord taketh away,
Somehow, Someway God gives us the strength
When we don't know what to say.
But when one's time has come,
When one's life has passed on,
We must find it from within move on.
We know a special place for them will be held in our hearts Forever

    I remember my grandmothers. They both made it to 95. One was a great cook and the other one was a great collector. I am sure your touching tribute is reaching her spirit. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
