"She's always been there for me
Just talking to her can make me happy
She tells me of the hard times she's been through
In hopes that I won't go through them too
She's an independent woman of stature and grace
She has beautiful eyes and a lovely face
An audacious strength from deep inside
In her I know I can confide
She's my guardian angel who'll always be
A very special part of me
She takes pride in caring for her family
She gives us hope and things to believe in
If I didn't have her there for me
I wouldn't be half the woman I turned out to be
I Love You Mom----Joycie

"~~Happy Birthday Mom- In Heaven~~          Sept. 18. 2016
Your in heaven- Still - On your Birthday!
So If I may?
I would like to ask you if I may make a wish On your
Birthday- Because Today-I could not hear your wish
My wish is simply This:
Things I feel most deeply Are the hardest things to say Mom,
I loved you In a very special way this you knew.
If I could have one lifetime wish
One dream that could come true,
I’d pray to God with all my heart,
For yesterday, and you.
With All My Love---Joycey"
