“You can shed tears that she is gone

or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back

Or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her

or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she’s gone

or you can cherish her memory and let it live on”

We will always love you Mom,

Love Debbie and Dawn – See more at:
