A Wife, A Mother, A Grandma too
This Is The Legacy We Have From You
You Taught Us Love And How To Fight
You Gave Us Strength, You Gave Us Might.
A Stronger Person Would Be Hard To Find.
In Your heart, You Were Always Kind
You Fought For Us All, In One Way Or Another.
Not Just As A Wife, Not Just As A Mother.
For All of Us You Gave Your Best
Now the Time Has Come for You To Rest
So Go In Peace, You’ve Earned Your Sleep
Your Love In Our Heart, We’ll Eternally Keep.
