BROOKS, Dorothy Elizabeth
BROOKS - In loving memory of my dear mother, Dorothy Elizabeth, who passed away December 18, 1973.
There's a gift in life we cannot buy,
That is very rare and true,
It's the gift of a wonderful mother,
Like the one I had in you.
The many things you did for me in your own loving way.
You left me with precious memories,
Which no one can take away.
Nothing could be more beautiful,
Than the memories I have of you.
To me you are someone very special,
And God must have thought so too.
Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by daughter Judy, granddaughter Charlene, grandsons Gerry and Terry.
