Remember the years
Of Laughter not tears
Life lessons she taught
Whether family or not
Is how she became a wonderful friend
Mother, grandmother and wife
Money canít buy what I have each day
The love of our family
In an unconditional way
Miles never kept her from her family or friends
Those memories will be cherished
In our hearts to the end!
