Condolence & Memory Journal

My thoughts and prayers are with Beth's sisters and family. We go back to 3rd grade at St. Austin's when she was my best friend. We had countless sleepovers at each other's house. Although we went our separate ways during middle and senior high, I've often thought about you; I'll never forget you, Beth.

Miss Beth you will forever be in my heart. It is a pleasure and great joy to have you as a friend. I consider you as my sister. Will miss all the late night calls and the laugh that we shared. I know that you are up there in heaven saying I finally have made it home. You was a women of great faith. Though it all you never gave up. Now you have your crown of glory. Will see you when I get there. Even though you are gone your presence is all around. When I fill the sun on my face,wind blowing all around,the smell of good food but most of all a warm feeling in my heart I will know its you.To everything there is a season,and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born and a time to die So this is not goodbye my dear friend, this is I will see you later.You just wait and see. To your family just know she loved you dearly especially her grandsons. Trust in the lord with all thine heart and lean not unto your own understanding In all thy ways acknowledge him,and he shall direct thy paths. He will get you through your grief. The angel is sitting high watching us below God has spoken He has called his beautiful child home Lets All Say Amen
