Rest In Peace

The first video is a recording of the full version which I wrote for my Grandmother and the second is an edited version which I hope can be used by others to honour their loved ones who have gone to be with the Lord. By Lucy Wall

I wrote this poem especially for my Grandmother. After a long battle with Alzheimer's disease she was called home to be with her Saviour in September 2015.

During her ninety four years on Earth she made quite an impression on pretty much everyone who met her and my Gran could certainly be described as a lady ahead of her time! I wanted to write a poem that would express my gratitude for having been a part of her life but also my gratitude for our Saviour Jesus Christ. There never seems to be a time that more readily highlights the awesome power of the Cross than when we lose a loved one in the faith.
