KIND AND TRUE,
SELFISHNESS SHE NEVER KNEW,
HER THOUGHTS WERE FOR OTHERS
TO THE LAST,
WE SHALL MISS HER SADLY TILL
OUR LIVES HAVE PASSED

GOD GAVE A TREASURE FOR A WHILE,
TO FILL US WITH HIS LOVE,
AND THEN HE TOOK OUR
DARLING CHILD,
TO DWELL WITH HIM ABOVE

A SMILE FOR ALL, A HEART OF GOLD,
ONE OF THE BEST THIS WORLD
COULD HOLD,
NEVER SELFISH, ALWAYS KIND,
A BEAUTIFUL MEMORY LEFT BEHIND

GOOD WAS HIS HEART,
HIS FRIENDSHIP TRUE,
LOVED AND RESPECTED BY
ALL HE KNEW;
TO A BEAUTIFUL LIFE CAME
A SUDDEN END;
BUT HE DIED AS HE LIVED,
EVERYONE’S FRIEND

A WONDERFUL MUM HAS
GONE TO REST,
FOR EACH AND ALL
SHE DID HER BEST;
PLEASE GOD, FORGIVE A SILENT TEAR,
A SILENT WISH THAT SHE WAS HERE

SAFE IN THE ARMS OF JESUS
