Thank you for the gift of love, now you’re sharing it up above. You had many things to say.
All in a caring way. You always saw good in everyone, No matter what they’ve done.
You were always the one we could all lean on. Even though it must have felt like a ton.
You were always the strength of the family. Now we must let you rest calmly.
As we say goodbye, as tears roll down our eyes. I know your place in heaven has a good view.
Because you’re telling God, I need to keep an eye on a few.
I know you will always be in our hearts and mind. So Mita, I know you must go, but I’ll never forget you’re one of a kind.
No memorial services are planned at this time.
Mrs. Carr requested that no flowers be sent. In lieu of flowers she requested that memorials be made to the Halifax County Cancer Association, P.O. Box 1891, Halifax, VA 24558.
