Memorial Poem:

If Roses Grow in Heaven

If Roses grow in heaven,

Lord please pick a bunch for me,

Place them in my Mother's arms

and 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 everyday,

but there's an ache within my heart

that will never go away.
