Our Mother was the sweetest soul
She seemed to have a heart of gold
She raised us all'as best she could
Our home seemed always to be full
No matter who, or from where they came
She welcomed all with open arms i
Even though we know her pains are over
Weep we must, for we lost so much.


If only we could have a little bit of
The courage she displayed over the years
We will make it through these difficult days
And that SMILE (even through the pain)
Will remain with us forever.
