In loving memory of
who passed away November 7, 2001
In a quiet country graveyard, where the gentle breezes
blow, sleeps the one we love so dearly, we lost 9 years ago,
we remember her so often and miss her every day, for life is
not the same for us, since she was called away.
Lord, if there are roses in Heaven, please pick a bunch with
care, and place them in her arms, tell her that we still care.
Our hearts still ache with sadness, secret tears will often
ﬂow, and what it meant to lose her, no one will ever know.
May the wind of love blow softly, on the quiet peaceful
spot, where the one we love is sleeping, and will never be
Though her smile is gone forever, and her hand we cannot
touch, we’ll never lose sweet memories of the one we loved
We Love You, Don and Family
