She will be missed by all that were touched by her smile, honesty and love.  One of Gods angles has gone home to be by his side

I've reached that point where I now know, 
My life here is over it's my time to go, 
By the principles of honesty I've tried to adhere, 
Perhaps that's why I do not feel fear.

When I leave this life my journey will start, 
So I don't feel down now it's time to depart, 
I'll be heading for the joys of eternal life, 
No more pain or the feelings of strife.

I'll feel sadness for those I will leave behind, 
But we'll never be far from each others mind, 
I'll be watching over them from up above, 
that way I can shower them all with my love. 

I'll leave them with memories they'll never forget, 
By focusing on them there will be no regret, 
Life will go on but they will be aware, 
They will feel my presence they'll know I am there.
