With tears and deep emotions
We came to understand
That Mom will be escorted
To a much better, greater land.
She taught us and loved us
And she led us so we'd grow.
Did so much for others
Hoping no one else would know.
Sleep on dear Mother, kind and true.
No dearer friend on earth than you.
For us you always did your best.
May God grant you eternal rest.
