ANNIE CONNORS

Mother

You can only have one mother,
Loving, kind and true;
No other friend in all the world
Will be so true to you.
For all her love and kindness,
She asked for nothing in return;
If all the world deserted me,
To my mother I could turn.
For those of you who have a mother,
Treasure her with care,
For you will never know her value
Till you see that she is not there.
To hear her voice, to see her smile,
To sit and talk with her awhile;
To be together in the same old way,
Would be my dearest wish today.


Lovingly
remembered by daughter, Katherine

If Roses Grow in
Heaven

By Dolores M. Garcia


If roses grow in heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Grandmother's arms
And tell her they're from me.


Tell her I love her and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for awhile.


Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
But there's an ache within my heart
That will never go away.


Love and
miss you Baba
- Rick
