She wished these to be her last words:

To Those Whom I Love, and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You must not tie yourself to me with too many tears
Be thankful that we had so many good years!

I gave you my love, and you can only guess
How much you have given me in happiness.
I thank you for the love that you have shown,
But now it is time I travel on alone.

So grieve for me a little while, if you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust
It is only for a while that we must part
So treasure the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away, for life goes on
And if you need me, call and I will come.

Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near
If you listen with your heart, you will hear
All my love around you, soft and clear.

And then, when you finally come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile........... and a "Welcome Home"!
