  6. I know that no words can take away the pain of losing someone you love so dearly. I was given this poem when my mother passed away and it seems fitting now. “I Thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I’ll never part. God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart.” You do carry her in your heart. You keep her spirit alive everytime you speak her name!
