In memory of my beautiful sister Alaine Hodges, “Lady”, whom we laid to rest on Saturday, March 21, 2015, in Buffalo, New York.
Six feet of soil cannot suppress
The soul that delights itself in God
And in the love of God’s people.
Sister your soul was a delight
shown in love, grace, and charm
so family and friends called you Lady.
Elegant beauty so strong
sands of time may run out
only to see you rise.
While we remember and wait
thinking of all the places
from which you are absent
from home, work, and from our lives.
We ponder and mourn
then we are reminded
that Lady is present with the Lord.
