Eva Limlaw (known locally as “Nan”) was a beautiful person who touched many people by her occasional visits and gift of homemade donuts. Her home was filled with the love she had for her family and her cupboards were filled with recipes, her favourite poems and Biblical messages to show her love of God.
This is a poem that was inside Nan’s cupboard door:
We think of her in silence
No eyes can see us weep,
But still within our aching hearts
Her memory we will keep.
Time may help to ease the bitter pain
Of the loss of one held dear,
But only few know how we miss her
And the loneliness of this year.
I try to be brave and remember
She now is free from all pain,
And at the road’s end, God willing
We, too, shall meet again.
The dearest mother, the kindest friend
One of the best whom God could lend,
Loving, thoughtful, gentle and true
Always willing a kind act to do.
Loving and kind in all her ways
Upright and just to the end of her days,
Sincere and true, in her heart and mind
Beautiful memories she left behind.
