    The Lord saw you getting tired
    And a cure was not to be,
    So He put his arms around you
    And whispered, “Come with me”

    With tearful eyes, we watched you suffer
    And saw you fade away,
    Although we loved you dearly,
    We could not make you stay.

    A golden heart stopped beating,
    A beautiful smile at rest,
    God broke our hearts to prove
    He only takes the best.

    It’s lonesome here without you
    We miss you so each day,
    Our lives aren’t the same
    Since you went away.

    When days are sad and lonely,
    And everything goes wrong,
    We seem to hear you whisper,
    “Cheer up and carry on.”

    Each time we see your picture,
    You seem to smile and say,
    “Don’t cry, I’m in God’s keeping,
    We’ll meet again someday.”

      This was a perfect poem. She is safe and whole in the arms of all her heavenly friends and family. Love you, Aunt Kelli.

    Granny I miss you so much already. I’m happy that we remained close and I have our frequent phone conversations to remember. You were always a wonderful Grandma to all of us. You spoiled us rotten but you were also tough when you needed to be. The world is a much better place having had you in it but I’m glad you aren’t in pain anymore. It’s hard to remember all of the good times in the midst of my sadness but I know I’ll get there. I hope I don’t embarrass you while you’re watching from above. I promise to live my life keeping you in mind and trying to keep you proud of me

  • Brad and Kerri Carlyle says:

    Mom we thought of you with love today But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, And the days before that too. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name. Now all we have is memories, and your picture in a frame. your memory is our keepsake, With which we’ll never part. God has you in his keeping,We have you in our hearts. we love you so much until we meet again Love Brad and Kerri xoxo

    I have so many wonderful memories of her when I was little and later after she moved away and came for visits! I am so thankful for all the time I got to go visit her priceless!!!! I will never forget her wonderful laugh or how it was hard to get a word in when talking on the phone or how much she loved playing games and loved to cook I love and miss you Aunt Marva

    I’m so very grateful to have been blessed with an aunt as wonderful as my Auntie Marva. I remember her visits to Idaho when I was younger with such fondness. Her visits were a treat for all of the family as they brought us all together which just doesn’t happen anymore. I am so glad that I was able to visit her twice in South Carolina. I shall never play a game of pinochle or zilch without thinking of her. As soon as we woke up in the morning we were at the table playing games. If she wasn’t playing games with you she was feeding you. I swear I gained 10 pounds every time I visited. I love you so very much Auntie and I’ll miss you terribly. I will see you again someday.
