Aunt Pasty,
The day that God called your name
It broke our hearts in two
But Heaven needed an Angel
And the one he picked was you
We just wish he could have waited
And let you stay with us
But you have left memories in our hearts
And that's where they'll always be
We just wish we could rewind the clock
Or make it turn real slow
We could have hugged you one more time
Before you had to go
No matter how much time will pass
We'll miss you everyday
Keep shining bright in Heaven
so you can light our way

My condolences Tom on the death of your mother. I always remembered her as a friendly person during our days at St. Xavier.
