I have a place in heaven

Please don’t sing sad songs for me,

Forget your grief and fears,

Away from pain and tears.

For I am in a perfect place


It’s far away from hunger

And hurt and want and pride,

I have a place in Heaven

With the Master at my side.

My life on earth was very good,

As earthly life can go,

But Paradise is so much more

Than anyone can know.

My heart is filled with happiness

And sweet rejoicing, too.

To walk with God is perfect peace,

A joy forever new.

4 Memories to “Arlene Joann Mosakowski”

  1. Yvonne Mosakowski says:

    My mama had the best smile, the best laugh and an uncontrollable giggle that would make everyone around her join in.

    She would give the best hugs and always knew when something was wrong and tried to make it better.

    I would give anything for one last hug and to hear her say, I LOVE YOU.

    My mama was and will always be my angel and my best friend.


  2. matthew mosakowski says:

    Caring is a word that comes to mind when I think of my Momma.
    She a is a caring mother, friend and person.

    Words can not describe the pain I feel with her passing.

    She was my greatest teacher of lifes lessons.
    If anybody knows my momma knows that she is a character, she would make you laugh when you needed it and when you felt sad she gave you a shoulder to cry on.

    My heart will never beat the same again.
    I love you momma, you mean the world to me.

  3. Debbie Mosakowski says:

    Momma always made me feel like what I thought or felt mattered. She’d ask for my opinion on so many things –medical, family, and even life after death. She always took my side when Conrad and I would have an argument. I know she loved me and that makes me feel special.

    I know she is an Angel in Heaven, watching over us now.

    I love and miss you, Momma.

    Forever in Our Hearts…

  4. Ann Welninski says:
