In fond and loving memory of a dear wife, mother and grandmother,
who passed away September 8, 1997.
A little tear falls from my eye
I swallow hard, try not to cry,
I think of you so far away,
Fifteen years ago you died today.
May the winds of Heaven blow softly,
On that quiet and peaceful spot,
Where the one I love lies sleeping
and will never be forgot.
Your resting place I visit,
And put flowers there with care,
But no one knows the heartache,
When I turn and leave you there.
There’s a pretty little flower,
Of pale blue tint and white,
It opens in the morning,
And closes in the night.
It’s a token of affection,
And a pretty name it’s got,
You will know it when I tell you,
It’s the sweet Forget-Me-Not.
We miss you Mom and always will,
Deep in our hearts, you are with us still,
You shared our hopes, our joys and fears,
God bless you Mom,
For those wonderful years.
We were there to see you die,
We held your hand and said goodbye,
Our last precious moments
we had with you,
Will live in our hearts
our whole life through.
Ever remembered, ever loved by husband Calvin and children: Deon, Kimberly and Kelsey and their families.
