You can see it in their eyes,
in tender hugs and
a love that moms and
You can see it in their smiles, through passing years
and changing styles,
a friendship that continually seems to grow.
You can see it in their lives, the joy each one of them derives,
in just knowing that the other one is there...
To care and to understand, lend an ear or hold a hand,
and to celebrate
the memories they share.
Your body kept you back these last years, but your spirit was strong and your will to live was amazing. Thank you for staying with us as long as you did and gifting us with your love. You and Dad together again, fly high and strong! In accordance with moms wishes there will be no services.
