    A poem for Marie’s family :
    The Angels sang Amazing Grace,
    the Lord came down and touched her face
    He held her hand and whispered low,
    Come with Me,it’s time to go.

    The Gates of Heaven opened wide
    the Angels lined up side by side
    a special guest was on her way,
    the day they took your Mom away.
    June ( Hawkins) Pyne
