You were a woman of exceptional courage With an enduring power to cope Taking each challenge one day at a time And never giving up HOPE………Encouraged by the faith of others to survive and overcome, with the courage to say I may be down……but the battle is not done! For the Woman of Courage that you were You always displayed amazing beauty and strength With the attitude no other chooses…. you gave yourself the permission needed to feel disappointed or sad. Your story is one of gentle strength……reminding us once more… Steel is sometimes clothed in velvet, and COURAGE does not always ROAR. Until we meet again rest in peace Aunt Margaret.
