IDA ASHAM In Memory of Our Mother You were a precious gift from God above So much beauty, grace and love You touched our hearts in so many ways Your smile so bright, even on the bad days You heard God's whisper calling you home You didn't want to go and leave us alone You loved us so much, you held on tight Till all your strength was gone And you could no longer fight He called your name twice before You knew you couldn't make wait anymore So you gave your hand to God And slowly drifted away Knowing that with our love we will be together again For all the times you gently picked me up When I fell down For every time you put us first For everything we shared The dreams, the laughter and tears We love you with a special love We are our Mother's garden.

My auntie Ida was a very kind and all around beautiful person. She was a person that everyone loved dearly. We are all going to miss her, it brings back memories of when I was a kid. She was always there to cook for all of us and just be there as a mother figure. R.I.P. Auntie, You will always be remembered. - Posted by: Dennis and Georgina Spence (Aunt) on: Mar 21, 2012
