Goodnight, Son, See You in the Morning
"Jack" you never told me you were leaving me. You never even said goodbye, son, you were gone before I knew it ... But I know God knows why. Now you have gone and left me, we can no longer share that special bond we shared as Mother and Son ... A bond of Love and Care ... I'm going to miss you so very much and my tears I won't be able to hide, but within my lonely heart ... I'll always feel you by my side. When my tomorrow starts without you, "Jack"

I won't think of us as being far apart, for every time I think of you ... I know you'll be right there in my heart. The gates of your precious memories will never close, for I will Love and Miss you, Son ... More than anybody knows. Sleep on Son, and take you eternal rest, I loved you dearly but God Loved you best.
~Your Mother,
Berlene Daniels-Collier
