You were such a precious gift,'a blessing from above. God gave us such a perfect soul to learn from and to loe. We miss you, Mom, your laugh, your smile, the way you said our name. We know that God could not resist the angel you became. If only we could tell you, another time or two...about our thoughts, our hopes, our dreams, about our love for you. We'd tell are greatly missed, we think of you each day. The perfect love God gave us, only in our Mother's way. And although we still don't understand why you had to go away, God has a plan for all of us and shows His perfect way. We know that you found peace and joy in your special place above. We know that God has cradled you in His never-ending love. The grace and beauty of your life, cherished memories we share, To see you again in heaven one day is our everlasting prayer.
