about

The last two weeks before our 88 year old mom passed she was in hospice and our whole family (7boys 1 girl and some 35 other grand and great grandkids) came together to celebrate her life with her. The priest after providing last rights and said he had never experienced an entire family spontaneously breaking out into "You are my sunshine" with our mother leading the chorus... That was mom always happy and positive and a 1/2 glass full kinda person. This ones for you mom . Thanks for always loving us and encouraging us to be our best Your Loving son Robert...

Slow Sweet Goodbye
By Robert Louis Crane

I had a dream the other night , an angel came bathed in white light, he bore a message , from you to me
He said I've come to take home your Marie, soon her time will come to leave, her work here is almost through, she's got one more thing to do

And She said Lord, I'd like a slow sweet goodbye, I want to gaze into their loving eyes one more time
I want to hold their hands, squeeze em tight, tell em everything is gonna be alright
and if you don't mind Lord, I'd like a slow sweet goodbye


She asked the Lord if he might wait, a few more days for her to come
she had just one more thing to get done
A day or two she would explain, was all she'd need to ease our pain,
just a few more days to gather family near


And She said Lord, I'd like a slow sweet goodbye, I want to gaze into their loving eyes one more time
I want to hold their hands and squeeze em tight, tell em everything is gonna be alright
and if you don't mind Lord ,
I'd like a slow sweet goodbye


The Angels held back on the gate, and all the saints prayed please God wait
Giver her a little more time, to hold her family near
Well the Lord he looked the other way
and Marie she got her stay
His gift to her, She gave to us that day.


And She said Lord, I'd like a slow sweet goodbye, I want to gaze into their loving eyes one more time, I want to hold their hands, squeeze em tight, tell em everything is gonna be alright if you don't mind Lord , I'd like a slow sweet goodbye
If it's ok with you Lord , I'd like a slow sweet goodbye
