God Saw You Getting Tired

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you
and whispered, “Come To Me”.
With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away
and although we love you dearly
we could not make you stay.
A Golden Heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best

Thank you for everything .My only guilt is I wasnt there to hold your hand or get to tell you I love you in person during these final days as I know you would have for me ..please forgive me ..I wanted to so badly but wasnt able to get the clearance from my Doctors as I was and had been sick for months..anyways spred your wings and fly home and tell everyone I said Hi and give dad a hug for me ..please be nice dont kick dad”s butt too much ..go easy on him ..

    I’m thankful that the last time I ever saw you I gave you a hug and kiss good bye. I’ve never been close with any friends mom like I was with you. Not even my own mom. You will be sorely missed. The last thing I want to say to you is lyrics from a song called “The Dance”. And now I’m glad I didn’t know The way it all would end The way it all would go Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain But I’d have to miss the dance

    Let’s think about the children, because that’s what Judy did, and she showed it with all of her essence.
    As a child she learned life wasn’t going to be easy, she suffered with burns, which effected the entire Quality of her life, but she endured the pain, then the loss of her dad who she never stopped missing.
    So even as a child her life was rough, but she endured. As she grew older she married, and through her rough marriages, she created seven beautiful children, she struggled through all the challenges of loneliness, illiteracy, ignorance, and fear to raise her children to their adulthood, all the while suffering with her own pains.
    Life takes one of her babies at birth, then another one later on and she watched as one by one, her loved ones left this world, as she endured the pain.
    Through all she endured, she stayed strong for all of us, as her babies had their babies, she hung on for all of us.
    Her love could be tough sometimes because in her world Love was tough, the harder she would make it for you, the tougher you would become.
    We should all remember the love she had, and the child she was inside, because with all the pain she had she brought us to today, remember her for the child inside her that taught us to be happy, and her child like innocence, because no matter what she did, when asked, she would reply, “I Love You All The Same”
    Respect her and honor her with the children that we raise, teach them the ways of Love, forgiveness, and happiness without the message of pain.

    WITH TRUE RESPECT FOR MY MOM

    What can i say about a women like Judith,well she was a mom to me,as well as others.I’m still expecting to see her smiling face when I walk through mics door,but it’s not there anymore,an that’s what kills me the most,this women basically became my mom,I loved her like I was her son.she would always greet me with a smile n a kiss on the cheek.she was easy to laugh,n I always felt comfortable around her.
    We all lost an angle on Sat.but as she was passing,she gained a set of wings to help carry her to god’s embrace.

    I miss you mom , I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories,and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake, with which I will never part. God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart . You can rest mom all your babies will be ok . I love you mom.

  9. Moms youngest mick says:

    What i was trying to say.
    I want to thank God for welcoming mom into heaven to be with all her loved ones. I also want to thank patrick mahoney at all ohio for all his help and rev.jason thompson for his kind words and prayers. i would also like to thank pete for the years of confidence and encouragement and me and moms family friends for all the advice and motivation i wouldn’t of made it thru this extreamly difficult time without them and the support of my wife who knows i just cant do life alone. maybe because im the youngest i always feel i need to do more always feeling im in constant competition with my brother to do whats rite i never wanted to doubt him and for that im sorry i guess we have that in common not knowing if what we are doing is the rite thing i just always looked for approval from my beautiful sisters whos strength compassion independence perseverance and determination remind me so much of mom the woman that gave life to you me our brothers and theresa and even though her and richard left us early almost taking mom with them from a broken heart we still had enogh power between us all to give some life back to mom in the form of nine awsome grandchildren who continue to do the same carrying on her legacy creating even more beautifull great grand children. all we have to do is look at any one of us to see how truley blessed mom was and what all she accomplished in her life more then any of us and i am so proud of her. God blessed her when he put us in her life but he blessed us most of all she is the part of me that i will be missing for the rest of my life i love her and her and i love all of you the same So much. Thankyou and God bless us all but God bless mom most of all.
