In Loving Memory

Loving daughter of Charlie Johnston and Rebecca Herzog; sister to Ria Poor and Charles Johnston Jr., mother of Aaron Johnston, partner in life, soul mate and best friend of George Needham.
The angels gathered near your bed,
so very close to you,
for they knew the pain and suffering
that you were going through.
I thought about so many things
as I held tightly to your hand,
oh how I wished that you were strong
and happy once again.
But your eyes were looking homeward,
to that place beyond the sky,
where Jesus held his outstretched arms,
it was time to say goodbye.
I struggled with my selfish thoughts
for I wanted you to stay,
so we could walk and talk again
like we did just yesterday.
But Jesus knew the answer
and I knew He loved you so,
so I gave you life’s greatest gift,
the gift of letting go.
Now my heart will carry memories
of the love you gave to me,
until we meet in Heaven,
where the best is yet to be.
We love you and
miss you so very much.
We always will.
