We have shared in your laughter
We have had such fun
We will cherish the memorable things that you've done
You raised a great family
And you watched them grow,
Into 4 strong young men
You were proud and it showed.
We have sadness and gratitude mixed in our heart
Your life is now over and now we must part.
You were the mother of all mothers-the friend of all friends
and we'll cherish your memory
Until our life end.
