A rose once grew where all could see
Sheltered beside a garden wall.
And as the days passed swiftly by,
It spread its branches straight and tall.
One day, a beam of light shone through
A crevice that had opened wide.
The rose bent gently towards its warmth,
Then passed beyond to the other side.
Now you who deeply feel its loss,
Be comforted. The rose blooms there,
Its beauty even greater now,
Nurtured by God's own loving care.
We love you always, Mom.

Viewing Tues., Aug. 26 7 p.m. at St. Nicholas Ukrainian Church
