Son pays tribute to mother
Feel no quilt in laughter, she knows how much we care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that she’s not here to share. We cannot grieve forever, she would not want us to.
She’s hope that you can carry on, the way we always do. So talk about the good times and the ways we showed we cared. The days we spent together, all the happiness we shared.
Let memories surround us, a word someone may say will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day.
That brings her back as clearly as though she were still here. And fills us with the feelings that she is always near.
For it we keep these moments, from her we will never be apart, and she will live forever, locked safe within our hearts.
Sadly missed, forever loved.
(In memory of Laura Milburn Lewis, Oct. 30, 1948-Dec. 5, 2007)
