A Quiet & Peaceful Place

As you leave this earth, I wish you a quiet & peaceful place.

A place where the rays of the sun peek through the canopy of the trees.  If you lift your face to the sun, you can feel the warmth kiss your cheeks.


A place where you can stroll leisurely through the woods, your eyes taking in the beauty of the forest floor that surrounds you, in every direction you can see.


A place where you can dip your paddle into the lake & witness diamonds dancing across the water as the light plays with the sunset.


I wish you a quiet & peaceful place where your soul & your spirit are content.  Where you take comfort in knowing you were loved & cherished.

Inspired by her love of nature & her sense of joy when indulging in the simple task of paddling.

I love you Miss B.

May you rest in peace.

Goodnight Gracie💛

Love & hugs
