In Loving Memory of

Roseline A. Fitzsimmons

Private Angel

I asked my mom about death, when I was just this tall. She said “God chooses his angels, some big and some small”…I didn’t understand what she meant back then. Until I grew much older and I had lost a real dear friend. If Mamma Rosie was here she’d say… “Please don’t shed any tears for me. For I have earned my wings you see. There is no pain upon my face, for our God has taken me to another place. If you should ask the question why, just believe in my wings I was given to Fly. For no matter where my two may go, my wings will take me down that road. They will fly into the highest skies just to keep her family by her side. And to my grandchildren that I leave behind, please keep me alive in your hearts and minds. And to my children with all my love, I will always cherish you from above. I’ll be your angel with wings on high soaring the clouds with stars in my eyes."

Until we meet again…

Your Private Angel
