Somewhere in my heart, beneath all my grief and pain, is a smile I still wear with the sound of your name. The precious word is MOTHER, she was our world, you see... but now, our hearts are breaking, she's no longer here to be. God chose her for one of his angels to watch from above. So mom can guide me and advise us and tell us that we were loved.
The day that she had to leave us, her life on earth was through. It taught us a lesson that God had better plans, this is surely true. Just keep in mind her kind heart and all those loving years. Let mom's memories surround us and don't hold back your tears. Though the time has come we must bid you farewell, we will remember all that you taught us and made you proud, you will see.
Thank you mom for all the love you showed. Although you left this earth and now you've taken flight. We all know that you are still here with us as an angel every morning, noon, and night. Fly High, Your Loving Children.
