You'll never forget your Mother's face
the sound of her voice,
the gentleness of her touch...
they let you know you were loved.
You'll never forget the stories she told,
the traditions she handed down...
they let you know who you are.
You'll never forget the lessons she taught,
the things she stood for...
they are her gift and her legacy.
You'll never forget, and you'll always know
that you honor her everyday
in how you live and who you are.

To Those I Love and Those Who Loved Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go....
I have so many thing to see and do
You must not tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave to you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see me or touch me,
I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart,
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this
I'll greet you with a smile and say,
Online condolences may be made at email@example.com.
