Such a kind and wonderful woman,
With a personality as warm as the sun,
And a heart full of fun.
Loved by all that had the privilege to know her,
She is gone, but will be cherished forever,
Reunited with her Husband once again.
Our loss is heaven’s gain.
So may God bless you and keep you,
You will never be forgotten.
