Pernessia Candis Terrell Dawson was a loving and kind person that was adored by all who knew her well. There are no answers for us to know why God takes the best angels. She left a message for everyone that she loved: If I should go tomorrow, It would never be goodbye. For I have left my heart with you, so don't you ever cry. The love that's deep within me, shall reach you from the stars. You'll feel it from the heavens and it will heal your scars. Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky. I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast. My cheek like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed. A light went out on Earth for me the day I said goodbye and on that day a star was born...the brightest in the sky. Reaching through the darkness with its rays of purest white, lighting up the heavens as it once lit up my life with beams of love to heal.The broken hearts I left behind will always be in your memory long and still. I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one. I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun and take my happy memories that I leave when God has called me home.
