In Memoriam

Estella Haywood

In loving memory of Estella Haywood, better known as ‘Tata’ of North Union.

A loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend passed away on February 6th, 1976.

It has been 41 years since you left your earthly home as the Lord called you to be with him.

The memories you left will always remain as they are treasures we hold dear to us.

We miss you dearly. Sleep on in eternal peace. We love you, always.

A beautiful garden now stands alone,

Missing the one who nurtured it

But now she is gone,

Her flowers still bloom, and the sun it still shines,

But the rain is like teardrops, for the ones you left behind,

The weeds lay waiting to take the garden’s beauty away,

But the beautiful memories of its keeper are in our hearts to stay,

Just like her flowers she was part of God’s plan,

So when it was her time He reached down his hand,

He looked through the garden searching for the best,

That’s when He found her, it was her time to rest,

It was hard for those who loved her, to just let her go

But God had a spot in his garden, that needed a gentle soul,

So when you start missing her, remember if you just wait,

When God has a spot in his garden, She’ll meet you at the gate.
