As some of you will know, it was my Nannie's funeral last week and I was asked to give a reading.

I came across this poem and thought I'd share it with you all-I think it really has some truth and has helped me put things in to perspective somewhat  - I hope you like. 

She Is Gone (He Is Gone)
You can shed tears that she is gone 
Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back 
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her 
Or you can be full of the love that you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday 
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember her and only that she is gone 
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back 
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
