Jenn, as I reread your lovely poem, I am reminded again of the first spring rain we recieved the day of mom's funeral. Thought you would like to know. It lifted just in time for the family to leave the parrish hall.

Although you left this earth
You did not go alone,
A part of us went with you
The day God took you home.

How precious a gift youíve been given
To witness such an amazing sight,
To be wrapped in His unconditional love
And stand in His perfect light.

Wilfred, Cyril, Lorraine, Lloyd and Grandpa
And your grandson Michael to name a few,
Are some of those that come to mind
Who were there with love awaiting you.

We are provided with some comfort
As we sit here to mourn and pray,
Knowing we, too, will feel Godís grace
And be with you again someday.

Whenever we feel the cool rain
Fall from the heavenly sky above,
Our unbreakable faith will assure us
Itís you showering us with your love.

And when the rainbow of light appears
Through the damp misty haze,
Weíll know with certainty itís you again
Trying to brighten our darkest days.

I will watch and listen for you every day, Grandma.
I love you.
