If roses grow in Heaven,
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my mother's arms
And tell her they're from me.
...Tell her I love and miss her
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day.
But there's an ache within our heart
For WE are missing her today. Happy M"

"Dear Mom xo
You can only have one mother
Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.
As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message,"
"To our dear mother up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love
Happy Birthday! Mom
We all Miss and Love You!
Love, Karen, Drew & Family

"Everyone that met her
Claimed her as their own
Gentle, so caring, so giving, so kind
And we were privileged to have her with us
For such a very long time
Now she is receiving
Blessings so deserved
And every time we think of her
we'll blow kisses to Heaven
From our hearts to her's
We MISS and LOVE YOU
Anthony, Jennifer,Kevin & Kelli"

It's a special day today!
For Evelyn is turning 78 years today!
Here's what she has to say:"
"" Dear Family, please dry all your tears;
I know you miss me so.
And if it had been up to me,
I'd never have chosen to go."
"For I knew that you would miss me
And the things that we could do,
And I wish I could have stayed on earth
And lived down there with you."
"I sing and dance all day
With all the angels here in Heaven
Who've come to heaven to stay."
"Lord Jesus holds us in His arms
And tells us of His love
He knew that we were hurting
That's why we came above."
"I love you, Family every day;
I send you kisses, too.
And some day you will join me here
And I'll always be with you."
I've got to got he party's on!"
"We'll sing and dance and shout
But I am always in your heart
And never far away."
