    You can shed tears that she is gone
    or you can smile because she has lived.

    You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
    or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.

    Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
    or you can be full of the love you shared.

    You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
    or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

    You can remember her and only that she’s gone
    or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

    You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
    or you can do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on……

    Its been a long time since I’ve see Grandma Westbrook but I can never forget. I fondly remember Audubon books and other gifts she would get me that interested me so much and drove me to learn. I celebrate you, Grandma. Thank you for the chance to know you. Thank you for all your shared and your love. You will be missed… I love you.

  2. I remember Mrs. Westbrook growing up. The obituary did not mention poems, but a few occassions, maybe my birthdays, I remember a few of them she wrote. I LOVED them! I also remember her laughter and all the freedoms of just being kids she gave us. She was a wonderful mom. Our hearts and prayers are with the family.

    Dorothy and her quick wit and gentle ways will be forever in our hearts and memories. Jan & Arthur Reid & family

  4. I love seeing the smiles on your mom you got to share with this time you got to spend together. I’m looking at Gladys Taber quotes and can see the uplifting perspective your mom loved about her work.
    I can hear that beautiful singing voice she shared over that recent Christmas you were visiting. I am so sorry. Losing our moms can be the toughest, hitting in waves as we think of things we want to ask or share 

    It was so sad to hear of aunt Dorothy’s passing. Now she can go find George to be together forever. She will live on in my mind and in my heart and I know that’s true of many more friends and family. My condolences to Demetre and Danny. May she rest in peace.
