Mother, Grandma and Friend

No one was ready to let you go,

you have left us with such treasures, only you will ever know.

Precious memories of playing many games,

Scrabble, Yahtzee, Sheephead and Uno to name a few.

Your recipes will linger on, and be made with love for generations to come.

It breaks our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.

A part of you lives in all of us, whether we garden, play games or crochet.

You have taught us how to love, and will remain in our hearts from up above.

We will never be able to see a butterfly or bird, and not think of you and your love for the Lord.

You loved your many children, their children and their children.

You have given the word Family a special meaning.

How lucky we are to have been loved by you.

We will cry many tears, feel much pain.

But in the end we will feel your warm hands holding ours and telling us not to cry.

Your life is a legacy of Joy and Pride.

Our grateful hearts will treasure every memory.
