  1. My Dear Thea – I will miss you so much and cherish all the good times we spent together over the years as well as all the talks we had over coffee. Your love was unmeasurable and I knew you loved me with all your heart. God has called you so rest my dear aunt, rest. Eternal Life – Filakia.

    Family Chain – We little knew that evening, God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone. For part of us went with you The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.

  • God looked around his garden
    And found an empty place,
    He then looked down upon the earth
    And saw your tired face.
    He put his arms around you
    And lifted you to rest.
    God’s garden must be beautiful
    He always takes the best.
    He knew that you were suffering
    He knew you were in pain.
    He knew that you would never
    Get well on earth again.
    He saw the road was getting rough
    And the hills were hard to climb.
    So he closed your weary eyelids
    And whispered, ‘Peace be Thine’.
    It broke our hearts to lose you
    But you didn’t go alone,
    For part of us went with you
    The day God called you home <3
