A limb has fallen From the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says
"Grieve not for me, Remember the best times, The laughter, the song.
The good life I lived While I was strong, Continue my heritage,
I’m counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, My soul is at rest. Remember all, How truly I was blessed. Continue traditions, No matter how small. Go on with your life, Don’t stare at the wall. I miss you all dearly, So keep up your chin. Until the day comes We’re together again"
The Maurina Schilling Funeral Home in Abbotsford is assisting the family with funeral arrangements.
