PICCOTT - In loving memory of my dear mother Ellen (Nellie), who passed away April 15, 1996.
Remembering you is easy, Mom, We do it every day,
Missing you is a heartache, That never goes away.
We do not need a special day, To bring you to our mind,
The days we do not think of you, Are impossible to find.
They say time heals all sorrow, And helps us to forget,
But time has only shown us, How much we miss you yet.
Sadly missed and forever loved by daughter Vinnie and son-in-law Wayne
