As our hearts fill with pain,
And our eyes fill with tears,
You are resting on in heaven,
But we really need you near.
We don t know how to start to,
Live without you in our lives.
You wasn t only a strong mother, but a sweet and loving wife.
We will miss you til our deaths, and
Things will never be the same but it s time to rest in peace,
Cause you have earned your angel wings.
Your Husband and Children
