Inge R. Beck
BECK, Inge R. In loving memory of a wonderful mother and wife, who passed away October 21, 2001. Time speeds on, Five years ave passed Since death it's gloom, It's shadow cast. Time goes by, but memories stay As near and dear as yesterday. It's not the words, they are but few It's loving memories we have of you. Although we smile and make no fuss No one misses you more than us. And when old times we do recall That's when we miss you most of all. Each time we see your picture You seem to smile and say Don't cry I'm only sleeping We'll meet again someday. - Alfred Beck and son Harald.
Sullivan, Joyce - In Memoriam
SULLIVAN, JOYCE In loving memory of my Mum who passed away 2 years ago, October 22, 2004. I often lie awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon my cheeks. The years I had with you, Are worth their weight in gold, The joy and laughter you gave me, Are mine to have and hold. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day, But missing you is the heartache, That never goes away. I hold you close within my heart, And there you will remain, To walk with me through my life, Until we meet again. -Always loved and remembered every day. Love your daughter Kathleen.
