Ann is a good friend of Sarah and John and when John died she did a wonderful poem in his memory I used it on the page just before his funeral.(such a short 6 months ago) I have just received one that she has done in memory of Sarah, so I thought I would share it with you as well.   It kind of describes her love of life. The picture I have put on is not a particularly good one but it shows her wonderful smile that captivated everyone.

Where shall we find her ?
The voice that is the morning breeze,
whispering through the pollen laden trees,
Soft as the hair on butterflies and bees
Yet firm as Edinburgh rock
Deep as a Caladonian Loch

Where shall we find her ?A mind to mediate and analyse
Is never still and never dies,
Multitudinous friendship ties
Leaves us with a wealth of memories
Enduring as the timeless seas.

Where shall we find her ?
In any face that saw her smile
"Come and stay a while,
Don't take an inch we'll give a mile,"
Such generosity of heart
Sets her apart

We'll never find her like again
Unless we look amongst the trees,
The meadows full of butterflies and bees
The birds that swoop and glide with ease
And peck the nuts and fruit and seeds.
Don't look for her that's where she'll be,
with John.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow around 1.30pm.

Love one Another.

I am so thankful for the memory of meeting her and John whilst they were both together and delighting in each other's company. Who was to know then what was ahead of them? I'm so glad they didn't. It is heartbreaking for you and othrs, but, just see them all together now, wishing you peace and happiness; which they are now experiencing in heaven.
