Prayer: read by Kesa Jones
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can. Father, give us courage to change what must be altered, serenity to accept what cannot be helped, and the insight to know one from the other.
Poem read by Kesa Jones:
"She Is Gone"
You can shed tears because she is gone or you can smile because she has lived.You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back or you can open your eyes and see that all she has left.Your heart can be empty because you can't see her or you can be full of the love that you shared with her.You can turn your back on tomorrow and live for yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.You can remember her and only think of her being gone or you can cherish her memory and let her live on.You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back or you can do what she would want you to do which is smile, open your eyes, love and go on,
