God called back his angel (Maryrita) on Tuesday April 14, 2020. Mom passed away peacefully and is with God now.
Maryrita was a loving and devoted wife to her husband Joseph of 43 years who passed away June 1996 and her 3 sons Joseph, Thomas, and Michael. Michael passed away during childbirth and never experienced the joy of her love.
She was a loving Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother to many. She always looked forward to the family gatherings. She enjoyed the practical jokes played on her with a loving smile and a hearty laugh.
Her house was filled with love and a place where everyone felt safe. She greeted everyone with a smile and a hug especially when you needed one. Everyone was welcomed all the neighborhood kids thought of her as a second mom.
Maryrita will be fondly missed by family and friends. The poem expresses how would she and all of us will remember her. May she rest in Peace.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God laid for me
I took his hand when I heard him call.
I turned my back and left it all
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work and play
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void.
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss.
Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch
Perhaps my time seems all to brief
Do not lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift your hearts up and share with me,
God wanted me now,
He set me Free
