Angels In The Stars, by Sara Manis
God saw I was getting tired
as he put his arms around me,
as he whispered come with me.

There is a place for you in heaven
where there is no suffering and no pain.
All you have to do is look up to the sky
and know that you will see me.

As I am an angel in the stars,
what a great place to be.
I am an angel of God, and a
sparkle I shall be.

Know that I'm watching over you;
just look up and see.
I'm looking, watching over you.
Please don't be sad for me.

I'm your angel in the stars
where I am happy now.
You will see and one day
you will be with me.

Eliza when I first took care of you I thought you were one nice sweet lady. I loved how you talked about how it was when you grew up and also keep me laughing about the things you use to do. You are going to be missed by everyone. Every time I ride by the house I always look and see if the light was on. I will miss you and them fancy earrings and necklaces you always wore. love you and R.I.P, My sweet angel.
