Grandma, you were just a girl, So many years ago. You had your loves and had your dreams, You watched us come and go.
You watched us make the same mistakes, That you had made before, But that just made you hold us tight, And love us all the more.
We haven't always though about the things that you have seen. To us you've been "Grandma" No thought of who you've been.
But we remember now in love, Your life from start to end, And we're just glad we knew you, as Grandma, and as a Friend.
Love Your Grand and Great Granddaughters
If Roses Gro In Heaven
If roses grow in Heaven, Lord please pick a bunch for me. Place them in my Mother's arms and tell her they're from me.
Tell her I Love& miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.
Because remebering her is easy, i do it everyday, But there's an ache within my heart that will never go away.
Love your daughter, Gina.
Cremation rites to be accorded.
