A poem from family: Remember Me – Remember me when you hear the wind blow. I am with God, I need you to know. He called my name, and I went to see if the voice I heard was speaking to me. He took my hand, we walked along. The road to heaven, where I belong. The angles sang so sweet and clear. They sang of love and that Jesus is near. I felt His touch, I saw His face I knew in an instant I was in his grace. He spoke to me, I heard him say, you are home now child, you have your way. So remember me when you hear the wind blow. I am home now with God, I need you to know.
