You were a precious gift from God above, so much beauty, grace & love. You touched our hearts in so many ways, your smile so bright it lit the darkest of days. You heard Gods whisper calling your home, you didn't want to go & leave us alone. You loved us so much, you held on tight till all the strength was gone & you could no longer fight. He called your name many times before but knew you couldn't make him wait anymore. So you gave your hand to God & slowly drifted away, knowing with all our love we will be together some day. Love always your daughter Ann xxoo
It seemed like yesterday God called for you & you went without hesitation to a better place, where all your pain & suffering had stopped. One year on our pain & suffering continues over your loss. On your first anniversary there have been many firsts, Easter, mothers day, birthday & Christmas, all of which were empty & meaningless without you. I miss your touch, your smell, your advice, your friendship, your hugs, your tears, your pain, your beautiful smile, your laughter, your talks, your wisdom, your beautiful cooking, your love, but most off all I miss you mum. I am sorry I didn't express what you meant to me. For all the things that were left unsaid, and especially the pain that you carried. I can't wait until we meet again so I can wrap my arms around you, give you a kiss & tell you how much I love you my angelic mother Betty Always in my heart daughter Ann xxoo
A day doesn't go by when I don't think of you, I wish I could hold you, tell you how much I love you & how extremely luckly I am to have had such a wonderful mother .I can only hope to be half as good a mother as you were, with all the sacrifices you made to give us a better life. You will forever live in my heart. Love & God Bless your daughter Ann xxoo
You have been dearly missed Mum in this past year, at times still like a dream. I wish you were here to see your eldest child turn 50 and eldest grandchild 18, we missed you at Easter, Mothers Day, your Birthday, Christmas and everyday. I would have loved to fuss over you to celebrate your 60 years in Australia in March 2011, and to recognise 53 years of Marriage in April 2011. You left behind broken hearts and a void too big to fill, as I look around our home there is a reminder of you everywhere, things you made or bought and things given to you as gifts. I miss the food you cooked with love, some only at certain times of the year for festivities or as a treat, it feels so odd to set the table for two instead of three. There has been much support of relatives and friends, many a wonderful word about you, "kind, thoughtful and generous people are never forgotten" was one messages I received. The physical separation is painful for I can no longer see, kiss or hug you, but feel your presence and light a candle for you each night and ask that you will continue to be my Guardian Angel. May your name remain on the lips and in the hearts of those who knew and loved you. You will always be the piece missing from me, I will always love and miss you and deep in my heart is where forever you will be.
Missing you Mum this Christmas, our first without you. It wasn't the same without you and will never be again, little did we know that would be your last day at home with us. You went to hospital on Boxing day and wispered the words "I am never coming home again" it broke my heart to hear those words but you never did. A void left too big to fill, you are forever in my thoughts and will live on in my heart. I love you Mum.
Thinking of you Mum on Rememberance Day and your 10 month Anniversary, 11th November 2011.
9 months ago it broke my heart to say good bye, not only to my beautiful Mum but a beautiful person who loved and cared for others. Missing you dearly, at times your loss is still very surreal.
Most of all the other beautiful things life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, but only one mother in the whole world. By Kate Douglas Wiggin Mum life is very lonely without you and on this special day your birthday you are greatly missed and never forgotten. Happy Birthday Mum, loving you always your daughter Ann
You were my cousin and my friend! I miss you everyday. I miss speaking to you about our everyday lives, advicing each other on health and family matters. I have so many wonderful memories that still bring a smile to my face and even a tear to my eye. Life without you, has left a very big hole in our lives and will never be the same again. I love you and so glad you are now in peace. Many of my prayers are in honour of you, watch over us and let your example live in our hearts. With love, your cousin Labiba Abraham xx
How I miss you. How I miss the times we had together, which I cherished so much. I will never forget you . You are and always will be in my heart. I remember when our dear mother Ghalieh was alive, the times we spent together, sewing,talking, crying, watching t.v. and cooking and talking about our earlier years. It was great when the 3 sisters were together and mum was there as well. When mum passed away,you missed her so much, we are did but you never got over her passing,saying you wished you had done more for her but you, were also sick and needed care and attention. Now you are together once again in heaven. Although you were sick and in constant pain you always made everyone welcome , I miss your lovely smile. I would always look forward to our Sundays together and would bake something different to have for afternoon tea which we would always have on the front verandah. Even the grandchildren would enjoy our times together, you did enjoy the company. I miss those days Betty, but I know that you are not in pain any more. I hated seeing you suffer for such a long time but now you are in heaven looking down on us . love you always, your sister Mary
My beautiful and precious aunty, the wonderful times we shared together will always be with me. From when i was a little girl and all the times you would mind my brother and i you would shower us with love and spoil us, how we loved going to your house. We would play in the sewing room with our cousins and as christine and i got older we would help you thread the belts and you would give us pocket money and then christine and i would go up to the service station and buy lollies, we had so much fun. As i became a young lady you would teach me some of youre dishes, and the cooking days we had together with my mum and you (you are both the reason i love to cook). The days i used to come over and hang out with you in the sun on the verandah (our favourite spot) you would tell me stories of when you were a young girl, i loved listening about the good old days! Our beauty sessions, how we laughed, i could fill a book with all the beautiful times i shared with her. I miss you terribly, our talks, your advice, how you always knew when i was upset and you would hug me even before i would open my mouth and tell you i was upset, i miss you so much, i kiss your photo every night and tell you that i miss you, but i hated seeing you in pain and calling for your mum so i thank god every day and know that you are no longer in pain. You have gone to a beutiful place and are not alone, i know grandma is looking after you now and you are with your beautiful son again. I love you and always will. Adele saliba
Angels When you were born, an angel smiled, As you became a child, an angel sat on your shoulder When you became a teenager, an angel held your hand As you grew older, an angel walked down the road with you, And, when you died, another angel got their wings. Unknown
