    Being a avid believer in Angels, I just seen this and found it appropriate:
    Your wings were ready , but our hearts were not . What comfort we should have it that.

    The energy she had was amazing even well into her later . I always told the story of her still cutting grass with a push mower in her eighties .I always said I had hope to have that energy when I reach that age . I will miss her tremondously . I know she will be united with the family who went before her including my mother. Love you ,Aunt Pearl... always
