In Loving Memory Davidae Y. Stewart
Davidae Y. Stewart AKA Miranda Parker
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day.
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Ah yes, these things I, too, will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seems all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now. He set me free.
When I opened up Facebook last Saturday, I was informed that a dear online friend had passed. Tears fell from my eyes as I remembered her posting on facebook she would have a pacemaker implanted on Monday, two days away. I was sadden she wasn't able to have this surgery and be with us a little longer.
I never had the pleasure of meeting Dee in person our relationship was online only. However the friendship we shared you would have never known it. She was a loyal supporter of SORMAG from day one. Anytime I needed a workshop presenter she was volunteering her time. I loved that she was willing to give back. Last year she and Shelia Goss offered a writing workshop. After the workshop was over the members were asked to stay in the group and they continued to mentor us in our writing. Dee believed in our dreams and wanted to see us all published.
When you heard about Christian Fiction, Dee's name came up as a loyal supporter and author. I was truly excited to see her writing dream come true with the publication of her first book. I believed she was on her way to be a favorite author among the Christian fiction readers.
She was a big fan of Shemar Moore and created the Shemar Moore Show Viewing Party group on face book. We would meet up on Wednesday night and watch Criminal minds together. This was a drama series, and she turned it into a fun hot show. I don't think Criminal Minds will ever be the same for the members of this group.
I know I'm a better person and writer from having Dee in my life. Her legacy will live forever in her daughter Selah and in her books.
Thank you Dee for your friendship. You will be missed.
Your Are Free My Friend
