  • Memories are a treasure,
    Time cannot take away
    So may you be surrounded
    By happy ones today
    May all the love and tenderness
    Of golden years well spent
    Come back today to fill your heart
    With beauty and content.

    God needed an angel in heaven
    So he called your dear mother above
    But she’s only as far away as your heart
    And she lives as before in your love.
