It is with deep sorrow that I extend my most heartfelt condolences to the entire Foley family on the passing of the Matriarch of the family, Patricia. I am so saddened that I never got the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Foley in person, but I hold dear all of the Christmas cards and correspondence we have shared through the past few years. I know she now soars high with her beloved son, Tommy as an angel like him. I also know that Tommy came for her to accompany her journey to God's Gate. They are now together in the Lord's Paradise He has promised each of us one day. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Foley family. It's been hard to sleep knowing and understanding the pain so well that they are going through at this sorrowful time. I am so thankful that Mrs. Foley is no longer in any pain and now at peace with her Tommy boy. God bless them both and the entire family.
''My Mother My Angel''
Once upon a time an angel held my hand,
She wiped away my tears and helped me understand.
Our time on earth is brief, there's lessons to be learned,
Each precious day God gives us another page is turned.
Every chapter full of memories, times of joy and tears,
Triumphs and defeats, through every passing year.
She loved us unconditionally, always by our side,
When no one else would listen, in her we could confide.
With gentle words of wisdom she led us on our way,
Down the paths of righteousness if ever we did stray.
She saw the light in everyone and gave with no regrets,
Always from her heart let's not forget.
Angels come in many forms, for me it is my mother,
With love I cannot say in words there'll never be another.
Every day I turn the page in my heart will ever remain,
Everything she taught me as I stroll down memory lane.
Thank you God for giving me the most priceless of all treasures,
Help my Lord to keep alive her memory here forever.
I pray that I can some day be everything she hoped I would,
That's she smiling down from heaven knowing she did good.
As we gather here today there's no ending to her story,
Another chapter has begun full of grace and glory.
God's called her to his heavenly home, part of his great plan,
Although it may be hard, we all must understand.
Faith is what is hoped for, things we cannot see,
Heaven is promised to all of us if only we believe.
