Her Daddy used to tell her that the best compliment a woman could ever receive was being called a good woman. That’s what she was, a good woman. She will be sorely missed by a plethora of family and friends. God Speed Coco, God Speed.
Memories in the Heart
Feel no guilt in laughter, she knows how much you care,
Feel no sorrow in a smile that she’s not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever, she would not want you to,
She’d hoped you can carry on, the way you always do.
So talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared
The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let the memories surround you,
A word someone may say,
Will suddenly capture a time, an hour, a day
That brings you back as clearly as though she was here
And fills you with the feeling that she is always near.
For if you keep these moments, you will never be apart,
And she will live forever, locked safely within your heart.
