She chose the following prayer to share with you:

For those I love, for those who love me, when I am gone, release me, let me go...

I have so many things to see and do. You musn't tie yourself to me with tears, be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love. You can only guess, how much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, but now it's time I traveled on alone. So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must; Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for a while we must part, so bless the memories that lie within your heart. And then when you come this way alone... I'll greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home." AMEN
