My Wife, Our Mother, Our Grandmother
Ma, there are so many things we can say
about you that will never end. You have
touched so many people’s lives and fulfilled
many different roles. Daughter, sister,
mother, wife, grandma, Nana, cousin,
godmother, friend, and neighbor. Most of all
you were you. A strong, stand tall firm
believer and inspirational blessing. Ma you
were there for everyone, as I would say a life
saver. When someone called you and needed
you, no matter the time, day or situation you
were there helping, supporting, giving,
teaching and listening. All the times you
were there, that showed deep down
how much you cared. Ma you will be missed.
You left us with so many memories
Of you that will never be forgotten.
Rest in peace Ma.
You made your home Knox central
and always had something
to eat and a piece of cake on Sunday
for all who came through your door.
