An Angel on Earth

She was sent directly from God above
To come and share her laughter and genuine love
Placing smiles on every face
And blessing others with her amazing grace
A woman known for her character, class and style
And she could always captivate you with her warm smile
Her dazzling outward appearance was a mere start
Even more beautiful was her loving heart
She was a dedicated servant for the Lord
Loved, admired and truly adored
A stranger never came across her path
Because her awesome spirit would always make you laugh
She was a blessing to her siblings and friends
And gracefully maintained her strength until the end
A loyal, committed friend that’s true
A loving mother through and through
On earth she was just passing along
Singing the hymn of her Father’s song
Because God has some work in heaven for her to do
We love you so much, Tippie, and we know you knew
