In ever loving memory  23.8.66 30.11.17
One sad year since you left us
We think of you in silence
And often speak your name
But all we have are memories
And your photo in a frame
Your resting place we visit
And put flowers
there with care
But no one knows the heartache
As we turn and
leave you there.
– From all the family
Always in our thoughts
Forever in our hearts.xx
MACDONALD – Treasured memories of my darling daughter Mary, who Jesus took into his care on November 30, 2017, aged 51. Dearly loved and very sadly missed. A precious daughter, mother, sister, auntie and friend to all.
Jesus looked around his garden and saw an empty space
He then looked down from Heaven and saw your tired face
Kind was your nature, true were your ways
We treasure your memory for the rest of our days
Until we meet again Mary, God bless.
