THIS IS ONE, OF THE HARDEST DAYS OF OUR LIVES 

MISSING YOUR LOVING, WHILE SOURING THROUGH THE SKIES.

MOMMY YOU RAISED US, WITH LOVE, STRENGTH, AND DEVOTION.

HOLDING THAT INDEPENDENT LIGHT, WITH DIGNITY AND EMOTION.

HEAVEN GATE IS OPEN AND WAITING JUST FOR YOU,

WITH ALL OF OUR LOVED ONES, CELEBRATING, YOUR COMING THROUGH. 

A LOVING WIFE, MOTHER, DAUGHTER, AUNT AND FRIEND.

THE LOVE YOU GAVE TO EVERYONE, WILL NEVER, EVER END.

YOU ARE IN, NO MORE PAIN AND NOOOOW YOU CAN REST.

WHILE WATCHING OVER US, AS WE DO OUR BEST.

GOD HAS GAINED AN ANGEL, TO HELP HIM, REACH HIS GOAL.

TO RID, THIS WORLD OF EVIL AND ONLY LEAVE BEAUTIFUL SOULS. 

WE LOVE YOU THROUGH ETERNITY!  LOVE ALWAYS THERESA, JANICE AND FAMILY
 
 

Farewell, Mommy

Somewhere in my heart beneath all my grief and pain is a smile. I still wear at the sound of your dear name. The precious word is "mommy" she was my world you see, but now my heart is breaking because she is no longer here with me. God chose her for his angel to watch me from above, to guide us and advise us, and know that I am still loved the day. She had to leave us when her life on earth was through. God had better plans for her for this I surely knew, when I think of her kind heart, and all those loving years, the memory surround us, and I can't hold back the tears she truly was my best friend, someone I could confide in, she always had a tender touch and warm and gentle grin. I want to thank you mommy, for teaching us so well and though the time has come that I must bid you this farewell. I'll remember you through all you've taught us and make you proud. You'll see thank you, my dear mommy for all the love you showed me. Although you've left this earth and now you've taken flight. I know that you are here with us each morning, noon and night.

Love, your children
