Our Beloved Mother, Margaret Faulds, 81, born on August 31, 1929
 and passed away on July 25, 2011. She will Live Forever in Our Hearts.

My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer -
A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe;
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go.

My heart is heavy, my legs have gone
My body’s served me well.
No longer can I walk this land
The place I love and dwell
So take me all carry me
And give me such a view
For in my mind, I’ll always have,
Lasting thoughts of you.

A cairn on a mountain top
One that we both knew,

Will be Our final resting place
Reminding me of you,
I want to see God’s kindly eyes
And hold His hand of love
For the love I shared with you on earth
Is all I’m guilty of.

Lay my weary limbs to rest
And cover me with stones,
Let the freshest air surround
My naked flesh and bones
Then mark a plot beside me dear
Score the earth to make a crease
And we’ll be together evermore,
Finally at peace.

As the lone piper plays a last lament
It carries through the Glen,
We lived our life as in a dream
And will do so once again,
Then when God calls for your sweetest hand
He’ll see your smiling face,
And He will know, that we have found,
Our final resting place.
In The Highlands of Scotland
the place that we call Hame

Rest in Peace Mom,

All of my love
Your Only Son

Thank you for the gift of love,
now you're sharing it up above.
You had many things to say.
All in a caring way.
You always saw good in everyone,
No matter what they've done.
You were always the one we could all lean on.
Even though it must have felt like a ton.
You were always the strength of the family.
Now we must let you rest calmly.
As we say goodbye,
as tears roll down my eyes.
I know your place in heaven has a good view.
Because you're telling God,
I need to keep an eye on a few.
I know you will always be in our hearts and mind.
So  Mother,
I must go, but I'll never forget you're one of a kind.

Happy Birthday in Heaven Mum. You are missed dearly. I wish you were here to meet my Son Stephen Samuel, he looks like me when I was a wee lad to see how much McKenna Hope has grown. She takes after you so much. I love you mom & I wish I could talk to you one last time.

All I want is one more hug and kiss hello one more dance, one more day, one more story, one more joke just another moment that would truly make me happy

Old Scots mother mine, You are with me all the time, Your kind old face, And your sweet Scots smile, Though we're far apart, For the sake of Auld Lang Syne, God bless and keep you, Old Scots other mine.
