Serenaded by Angels
written by Kirk Talley
dedicated by Patty to my beautiful aunt Margaret
Mickey Kennett sang this beautiful song at her funeral
She went to sleep one night
Never to awake again
But everything was all right
Between her and Him
She awoke in Heaven's courtyard
Free from pain within
The angels gathered around her
And took her by the hand


Serenaded by angels, up to the throne
Serenaded by angels, finally at home
Surrounded by praises, to the King
Welcome to Paradise, the angels did sing

Serenated by Angels

Now I close my eyes at night
And try to imagine
That city of brilliant light
Waiting for me
But my mind cannot conceive
So I'll continue to dream
Till I'm transported there
Then I will be

Welcome to paradise, the angels did sing

My mother's baby sister and a wonderful aunt has passed.  Margaret I love you and I'll always treasure all my memories of you and my days at McComas.  You were there when Mickey and I needed you after your sister Helen (our mother) died at age 32.  My heart and my prayers are with her children now.  She went peacefully in her sleep.  But we all agree she is not in pain anymore.  She had suffered with severe arthritis in her spine for far too many years.  I have never seen a mother more devoted to her children than Margaret.  I recently told her as a teenager I watched her tending her little ones and she taught me so much on how to tend to my own 4 children I would later have.  She cried and hugged my neck when I told her this but it was true.  We had a Huffman reunion just 4 weeks prior to her death and she was so happy being there and seeing everyone.  None of us knew at that time how soon we would be losing her so it is so special to all of us that attended that we were there with her on that day.  I called her shortly after the reunion and she told me how happy she was that I had called and how much she enjoyed that day. 

Aunt Margaret you have my heart, my soul and my love for eternity,  your niece Patty "Spicer" Smith
