For Mom, With Love
You had a way of showing love that meant so very much
That added a lighter, brighter note to all the lives you're touched.
You had a caring, helpful way that really was a gift
A way of doing thoughtful things that gave the heart a lift;
You had a way of being kind in all the things you did,
And it meant far more than words can say
To have a mom like you!
Love, Joey & Andrew
