After much deliberation and a whole heck of a lot more tears, I drafted these words for her memorium card:
God sent your guardian angels to guide you home, to abide in heaven with them, whole and complete, free of pain and suffering.
Feel the love and peace as you walk through Heaven’s gardens with the loved ones that have gone before you.
Those of us on Earth will see your smile in the wildflowers, feel your love in the rays of the sun and see your happiness in the twinkling of the stars.

Then the followidsc_4913ng came to mind – a favorite verse from the Bible that was made into an upbeat and beautiful song over 30 years ago – so I added this verse at the end.

For you will go out with joy. And be led forth with peace;  The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,  And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.  Isaiah 55:12
