Someone once asked, “If only you knew how short life would be, what would you do?
What will they say when God calls you home. What will they embrace once you are gone?”
I hope they would see what I’ve done with my life, who I’ve cared for and how I’ve survived.
I hope they’ll say “She loved, more than anything else; she loved with all of her heart. She loved everyone she believed in, she loved. Oh, oh, she loved.
She loved the Lord and served all her life. A sacrificial mother and an honorable wife.
She gave all she had and through every trial, made life much sweeter because of her smile.
Everyone would see what she’s done in her life, who she cared for and how she survived.
I’m sure they’ll say, “She loved, more than anything else. She loved, with all of her heart. She loved, everyone she believed in. She loved, Oh, oh she loved
