Thank you Mother, for all that you have done. You took great care of your daughters and sons. You loved us all from the very start with your warm, kind, and loving heart. Thank you Mother, for being strong, while trying to teach us right from wrong. If anytime we had a problem, you were there to help us solve them. You'd lift us up when we were feeling blue. Thank you, Mother, for we could always count on you. You were such an awesome mother. The love you showed was like no other. Thankyou, Mother, for your dear, sweet love. Now you'll watch over us from Heaven above.
