May 19, 2012

Yesterday, we lost a Dear, Kind and Wonderful Lady.  

Joan Emilia Thomas
January 13, 1931 - May 19, 2012

Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night. 

Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul's sweet flight. 

I am at peace, my soul's at rest, there is no need for tears. 

For with your love I was so blessed, for all those many years. 

There is no pain, I suffer not, the fear now all is gone. 

Put now these things out of your thoughts, in your memory I live on. 

Remember not my fight for breath, remember not the strife. 

Please do not dwell upon my death, but celebrate my life.

You will truly be missed. 

I could not have dreamed of a better Mother-In-Law and role model.  Joan was a devout Catholic who never lost her way and always knew that Les and God would be waiting for her in Heaven. 
I love you Mom.
