    Our thoughts are with you. Saying goodbye to those we love is always hard, but I truly believe that those who love us are never really far away. May each sunny day remind you of her smile, and starryZ4A nights bring you the comfort of her loving arms.

    Why am I crying, Why do I feel so alone, You left me now to find a far better home. I will always think of you, As each day appears, My sorrow will softly lessen, And gone will be the tears. But my love will continue, As each year passes by, And I will wait for my calling, To once again be by your side. Love you Mom.
