MOM – You’re in God’s hands now, we know that you’ll be OK somehow, we’ll miss you every day, we’ll miss your caring way and your smiling face, but we know you’re in a loving place. When we see a hummingbird, we’ll think that it is you saying you’re OK. Mom you only deserve the best, that’s what you shared with all the rest, but we know that you are no longer in pain because you’re in God’s hands now.
