One Condolence for “HUDSON Jolayne”

  1. Chonita Sims-Robertson says:

    Art, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Upon the sudden death of my father last year my Aunt Joan referred to his passing as his graduation day. With that thought in mind I have prepared a poem for you. I hope this gives you some much needed comfort at this time.

    Graduation Day
    by Chonita Sims

    It’s graduation day
    for Jolayne Hudson
    as she is called home
    by her Father in Heaven.

    It’s graduation day
    as Jolayne’s spirit leaves her mortal shell
    after successfully completing
    her mortal education.

    It’s graduation day
    as we mourn the loss of a
    friend, a grandmother, a mother, a wife,
    a soul mate.

    It’s graduation day
    as sorrow fills our hearts
    while Jolayne’s mortal body is laid to rest
    until the time when her spirit and body are reunited.

    It’s graduation day
    as we grieve our recent loss.
    And as we mourn Jolayne remains with us,
    crying with us while comforting us
    in her own special way.

    It’s graduation day
    for Jolayne Hudson.

    Jolayne Hudson nee Tillack
    July 11, 1937 – July 5, 2016

    This is but a temporary good-bye
    until our own graduation day
    where we will be reunited with Jolayne
    never again to be separated.

    It’s graduation day
    for Jolayne Hudson.
