Hi Nancy

Thinking of you at this time.

The road you travel for a while will be filled with tears, welcome them as a sign of the love that you had for your Mum. The sadness will ease and the birth of a much loved grandchild will bring joy to you all. Life goes on.

Love

((((((((hugs))))))))))

Dear Nancy,

I'm so sorry to hear about your mum..I know it was expected..but still a shock when it comes.
You've written such moving and beautiful posts about her..words to treasure..along with your memories.

A new baby..a new life..sort of completes the circle.

Much love to you and yours...gigi xx

Your lovely Mother must be very close to you and so proud of the way her daughter is accepting this loss. Your post was beautiful.

John Oxenham
“Adieu and Au Revoir”

As you love me let there be
No mourning when I go, -
No tearful eyes
No hopeless sighs,
No woe, - nor even sadness!
Indeed I would not have you sad
For I myself shall be full glad
With the high triumphant gladness
Of a soul made free
Of God’s sweet liberty-
No windows darkened.

For my own
Will be flung wide as ne’er before,
To catch the radiant inpour
Of Love that shall in full atone
For all the ills that I have done;
and the good things left undone;
No voices hushed
My own full flushed
With an immortal hope will rise
In ecstasies of newborn bliss
And joyful melodies.

Rather of your sweet courtesy
Rejoice with me
At my soul’s loosing from captivity
Wish me Bon Voyage
As you do a friend
Whose joyous visit finds its happy end,
And bid me both ‘ a Dieu’
And au revoir
Since though I come no more
I shall be waiting there to greet you
at His door.

And as the feet of The Bearers tread
the ways I trod
Think not of me as dead
But rather
Happy, thrice happy, he whose course is sped
He has gone home to God
His Father.
