Remember me with

Smiles not tears,

For all the joy through all the years,

Recall the closeness that was ours,

A love as "sweet" as fragrant flowers,

Don't dwell on the thoughts that’s cause you pain,

We'll see each other once again,

I am at peace....

try to believe it was my time...

I was called home

But "what a view" I have from here,

I see your face, I feel you near,

I follow you throughout the day,

you're not alone

along the way,

And when God calls you...

you will be,

Right by my side..

Right here with me..

Till then,

I'll wait by Heaven's door,

We'll be united.....


World greatest loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother.

We love and miss you so much, Mother. Nanny.

May you rest in peace,

Until we meet again...
