Courtney DeJuan Shaw

June 24, 1989 ~ September 11, 2018 (age 29)

To the living, I am gone,

To the sorrowful, I will never return;

To the angry, I was Cheated

But to the happy, I am at peace.

To the faithful, I have never left.

Talk to me, and I will hear

Your prayers, They comfort me.

Your laughter makes me laugh,

But don't weep for me as I have my reward

I am with the Father and he will

Never let me perish, The Lord comforts me,

And longs to comfort you

So be happy my family and don't despair

I am in good hands waiting for the day

When the Lord calls you to come home.
