You are loved beyond words, missed beyond measure. Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure.
I thought of you with LOVE today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name; But all I have are memories that are captured in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake with which I'll never part, God has you in His keeping, but I have you in my heart. Love Always Mary ☆☆•*¨*•.¸¸.•*¨*•☆☆.¸¸.•*¨*•☆☆•*¨*•
