Mother 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 that I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.
Love and miss you always Mom
Love, Pam and Shane
Mom had suffered from dementia these passed 7 years. She was very cheerful & happy @ Samaritan. Even though she didn't know who we were anymore, she recognized our faces. She is now even happier joining dad in Heaven. We all love you mom! And will miss you dearly.
