May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be;
So he put his arms around you,
And whispered, “Come to me”.
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away;
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
Though our hearts are broken, we know you are at peace. Julie, I love you! I will forever cherish our childhood memories. We will see you in every sunrise & sunset; butterflies & dragonflies; cardinals & doves. Your smile and legacy lives on in your children & grandchildren who love you dearly, and all of us Fischer kids & Momma.
Love you Lulu,
your little sis
