It’s only been a few months since you left us and we miss you so much. You have always been the heart of the family. Now it’s coming up on your birthday next month then the holidays. After the New Year, it will be your wedding anniversary. Four months after that you will be gone a year. How I wish you were still with us, but I know you are in a better place. No more in pain, your body whole and reunited with your dad, mom and sister. I leave you this poem I picked out for your funeral.

When I am Gone

When I am gone, don’t call me back,

My Life on earth will be no more.

Peace I leave you, for my last act,

I’m now beyond this earthly door.

I’ll miss your laughter, tears will fall,

But look within your aching heart,

Loving memories there-recall.

Hearts stay together; bodies must part.

I thank you for the love we’ve known.

Please know that always I’ll be near

And though I take this step alone,

My soul’s whispers I know you’ll hear.

Live your life with courage and love,

Continue the fight you’ve begun.

Proudly, I’ll watch you from above,

Knowing through Death-Life I have won.

Your loving daughter,

Toni Tapia
