It was only one year ago when we received that phone call.

I wonder daily, was that the day

When God put his hands on your shoulder

And whispered in your ear, "Come with me."


Did you just reach out and you

Took his hand, never turned back and left it all

And now, one year later, I think

If tears could build a stairway

And memories were a lane...

I would walk right up to Heaven,

To bring you home again.

We miss you dearly

We miss your laugh, you love, hugs, kisses

Encouraging words for our kids

and most of all

You left us tons of memories

My dream was so clear

You stated that "I am free"

Your voice was so clear that you stated

"Lift up your hearts and share with me. God wanted me now.

For I have gone to a city where the roses never fade."

My dream is my strength, now I know you are here with us daily

You are always in our hearts

What a wonderful and beautiful guardian angel we have

What a day that will be, when we see face to face. Amen

The family of Loretta Drake
