For Mom

Mothers are a special gift sent

from God above,

They bless us with their nurturing,

And fill us with their love.

They pick us up when we are down,

And when we're sad they know,

They're always there to lend a hand,

And guide us as we go.

And mothers are like special jewels

that can't be bought or sold...

A mother's love's more precious

than the rarest gem or gold.

Yes, mothers are a special gift sent

from God above,

And we'll be blessed forever with

their never ending love!

Faye Kilday


Although it has been eight years today that you left us Mom, you are in our hearts daily. When I look at my daughter turning into a young woman I can`t help but think of you. How you adored the little girl and doted on her, and yes even spoiled her. How I wish that you could see her now....but wait you can can`t you?

In memory of Helen George

You know you never really get over losing your mother, even when you`re pushing 50 there are those moments when you wish she were still here.
