Card of Thanks

The Open Gate

Thoughts surround your mind today

That cause your heart to grieve

The moment is approaching

When you will turn to leave

 

Envision with me if you will

A place beyond death’s gate

Life goes on forever there

And beauty never fades

 

Sickness can’t gain entrance

And death has lost its hold

Tears are wiped by God’s own hand

And no one can grow old

 

The moment that I left you here

I stepped into that place

Prepared for me and ready

When I stepped through the gate

 

The family of Juanita Wilkie would like to extend our thanks for everything that was done during Juanita’s illness and passing. Juanita was loved beyond words and is missed more than words can say. She was a wife, mother, Nana, sister-in-law, aunt, cousin, friend, and more to so many. Our hearts are broken but we know she is at peace and she is no longer sick or suffering.

Our thanks to the medical staff at Northside Hospital Cherokee, Piedmont Mountainside Hospital, Georgia Cancer Specialists, and Prestige Medical Group. Your kindness and compassion will never be forgotten. A special thank you to the staff at Piedmont Mountainside Infusion Center. Each of you went above and beyond to make sure she had everything she wanted and needed during her many blood transfusions. All of you will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

To our family and friends, thank you, to each of you that came to the hospital and funeral home. We thank you for the food that was brought, for the beautiful flowers that were sent, for all the phone calls that were made, and for every prayer that was said on our behalf. We will never be able to repay everyone for the kindness that has been shown to us. A special thank you to the Eastern Star and Refuge Baptist Church for providing meals for us at the funeral home.

Thank you to Rev. Eddie Parker and Rev. Jimmy Gayton for your words of comfort at the hospital, funeral home, and during the service. To Angel Spirit and the Refuge Baptist Church Choir we thank you for the beautiful songs, you sang her favorites and she would have loved them all. To the pallbearers David Scott, Mike Watson, Nathan Watson, Corey Watson, Jason Segers, Lloyd Johnson, Jeremy Jones, and Tony Tippens we thank you for being the ones that took her to her final resting place, she loved each of you. Our many thanks to Owen Funeral Home, Cartersville and Cagle Funeral Home, Jasper for your help, love, compassion, and support during this very difficult time. A special thank you to Scott Youngblood at Owen Funeral Home, she loved you like a son, thank you for making sure everything was just as she would have wanted it to be. There is no one else she would have wanted to take care of her on her final journey.

We are blessed to be surrounded and uplifted by an army of family and friends during our heartbreaking loss. It is our hope and prayer that God will richly bless each of you. We will forever be thankful to everyone who helped us through this time and for everything that was done for us. Again, thank you.
