Her life was a shining example of kindness, love and patience and will always remain bright in our memories. Adieu, dear ones, I have waited long / To hear the message that calls me home / And now it comes like a low sweet song / Of welcome over the river's foam. And my heart shall / ache and my feet shall roam / No more, no more; I am going home. Home, where no / storm, where no tempest raves, / In the light of calm, eternal day / Where no willows weep over lonely graves / Where the tears from eyelids are wiped away. And my soul shall sigh, and my feet shall roam / No more, no more; I am going home.
