In Memory -
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you did not go alone,
A part of us went with you,
the day God took you home.
If tears could build a stairway,
and heartaches make a lane,
we'd walk our way to heaven,
and bring you back again.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we love you still,
in our hearts you hold a place
no one could ever fill.
We love you mom and nanny and we will forever miss you, till we meet again. xo
