A special poem from the family.(Heaven sent us a gift that changed our lives forever. As a child, you embraced our every need; you wiped away our tears, always planting a loving seed. As we grew beyond our childhood, our praises you would sing. While giving us roots and wings. Heaven sent us a gift, our lives have been so blessed, because we have the best, this woman is our special Mother).
