TributeA much-beloved lady, remembered by us all,
Has ended all her labors and answered to God's call.
We're grateful to have had her for so many years,
For this we can be thankful, even through our tears.
Winnie loved to be quite active and lived a busy life,
Caring for her family, a good and faithful wife.
A most devoted mother, Grandma, great-grandma too,
She did with much unselfishness the best that she could do.
Every Sunday morning, while her health would permit,
How she loved to worship and in God's House to sit!
We thank God for her and her Christian faith so strong,
We'll treasure all the memories of a life so full and long.
In recent years she suffered but never did complain,
Now at last she's resting where there's no more pain.
We will surely miss her and her cheery smile,
But it will not be forever – only for a little while!
She's gone to meet her loved ones for whom she grieved so long,
Now they are all together, just where they belong.
We pray for God to help us all God's love to know and share,
Till some day we shall meet again – with Jesus – over there!
