We sat beside your bedside, our hearts were crushed and sore. We did our duty to the end, until we could do no more. In tears we watched you sinking, we watched you fade away. And though our hearts were breaking, we knew you could not stay. You left behind some aching hearts, that loved you most sincere. We never shall and never will forget you mother dear. Heaven’s got another angel around the throne tonight, and we are all at peace knowing your back and resting in dad’s arms once again.

Mom we all love you immensely, rest in peace my love.
