KELLY - In loving memory of our dear daughter, Tammy, who passed away December 15, 1993. Also remembering Derek and Jason, who passed away December 15, 1993.
Day by day our thoughts do wonder,
To the grave not far away;
Where they laid our dear daughter,
Just six years ago today.
Gone from the earth so swiftly,
Just like a flower in bloom;
So young, so fair, so loving
Yet called away so soon.
Sadly missed and lovingly
remembered by Mom, Dad and Tony.
