I still have the dolls that she made for me growing up. I will miss and love her.

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.

Tell her that I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

I remember when I was 10 that my nana (Virginia Ann McCartney) let me spend the night with her and she made me homemade chicken soup and she taught me how to crochet.
