You were our little sister, the baby of the bunch
It wasn't supposed to happen this way, and we miss you - Oh So Much -
We couldn't believe the words, when we'd heard them on that day
That God had called you away from us, to go to heaven to stay
Words can't begin to express our pain and deep despair
But we are all so very grateful for the 53 years we had you here
Because of your kind and giving spirit, the world is now a better place to live
And even in your passing you still managed to find a way to give
Margie, we can only hope you know how much we love you as you passed away
Because we felt your loving and giving spirit each and every day.

In loving memory of: Margie Sparks Powers from her brother and sisters: Lawrence Sparks, Darlene Sparks Heckert, Betty Sparks and Gladys Sparks Elste

Our sister, Margie Sparks Powers, passed away suddenly from a brain aneurism on Monday, June 16, 2014 at the age of 53. She was a healthy, vibrant, beautiful, humble, giving, thoughtful, god fearing woman and as is the case with most aneurisms, there were no warning signs so we had no way of knowing and didn't have an opportunity to say goodbye to her. Unlike our Mother, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease for over ten years before her passing in 2010, we knew she was leaving this world to enter God's ranks in Heaven. Our sister, Margie, was passionate about educating herself and others about Alzheimer's disease and its effects on the patient and family members who may become afflicted with this disease. Even though Margie lived over 7 hours from our Mother, she would make that drive many, many times on her weekends off from work to help our other sister take care of our Mother. It pained us all to watch our Mother's mind be robbed by this terrible disease.
We are trying desperately to make sense of this terrible tragedy, but as our Father used to say to us "You can't question God's will." We find comfort in knowing that Margie is in Heaven now with our loved ones and hope that once you pass over, God takes away all of your ills and that she is sitting with Mother, holding hands and having a wonderful conversation, where all of Mother's memories are intact. Our other hope is that by raising awareness and through education of this debilitating disease, when our grandchildren are our age, Alzheimer's will be an obsolete word, only found in history books.
