Left to cherish her memory are her:
Mom, you rest in the arms of angels
In a place of peace and love
Watching over us always
From heaven up above
You guide us through our worries
And help us through each day
Always by our side
You never went away
The bond cannot be broken
Made from love so pure
Death does not break the bond
It lives on for ever more
You rest in the arms of angels
Free from illness and pain
Waiting for the day
We are together once again
