34: From the Cradle to the Grave From the cradle to the grave, I've watched with eyes of love, and seen each moment of your life from my Home above. From the cradle to the grave, not one second have I missed, although there was some heartache that made you wonder if I exist. From the cradle to the grave, you never walked alone, for when the burden was too heavy, I gave you my very own. From the cradle to the grave, every thought you had inside, was broadcast here in Heaven, you have no place where to hide. From the cradle to the grave, from the grave to Heaven's door, there are promises and blessings as you love Me more and more. ~Tracey Allen
36: You You hugged me and you cared for me, You taught me how to sew, you loved me unconditionally, as you watched me grow. You stayed up talking with me, till all hours of the night, you even taught me how to fly, a soaring, swirling kite. You were always proud and prayed for me, you even held my hand while walking with me. You are in part of who I am today, and without you, my life would have had no meaning, and would have passed away. You taught me to love the Lord with all my heart and soul, you lived by example, and for that, I am truly thankful. I love you my dear Meemo, words cannot express, just to have had you in my life, for that I am richly blessed. ~Aaryn, July 2011
