REST IN PEACE... .......YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE WELL!!!


YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART FOREVER AND EVER ..AMEN

When life as opening buds is sweet,
And golden hopes the fancy greet,
And Youth prepares his joys to meet,--
Alas! how hard it is to die!
When just is seized some valued prize,
And duties press, and tender ties
Forbid the soul from earth to rise,--
How awful then it is to die!

When, one by one, those ties are torn,
And friend from friend is snatched forlorn,
And man is left alone to mourn,--
Ah then, how easy 'tis to die!

When faith is firm, and conscience clear,
And words of peace the spirit cheer,
And visioned glories half appear,--
'Tis joy, 'tis triumph then to die.

When trembling limbs refuse their weight,
And films, slow gathering, dim the sight,
And clouds obscure the mental light,--
'Tis nature's precious boon to die.

RIP. And this is surely a very fitting tribute to someone that cared a lot for all around him.
Celebrate the life Irena for when gone they go to a better place. Keep the best, warmest memories closest to your heart.
Best wishes!
