“Don’t weep at my grave,

For I am not there.

I’ve a date with a butterfly

To dance in the air.

I’ll be singing in the sunshine,

Wild and free,

Playing tag with the wind

While I’m waiting for thee.”

I met Maud 3 years ago at the cancer clinic . We just found out my dad stage 3 lung cancer . He was just starting his chemo . Being a little nervous about the whole experience and this was our first time in the chemo Center , we starting chatting because I love to talk to everyone . And the very special lady who smiled and said “ Hi “ was Maud . We instantly became friends . Maud was a blessing who came into my life that day . A beautiful soul and full of inspiration . Of course we became Facebook friends and always kept in touch . Maud was indeed and angel to me . I will miss our chats and even a ❤️ Sent my way on Facebook .
