CAMPBELL – In loving memory of my dear mum Mary, who passed away on July 6, 1998.
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
But all I have are memories
And a picture in a frame
My heart still aches with sadness
My secret tears still flow
For what it meant to lose you mum
No one will ever know.
– Your loving daughter Kay.

Someone too special to ever forget.
