Continue from post below: This is the second poem about my sister Shari.
The Baby's Name. When the baby arrives, a father you'll be. A son or a daughter it may be. A daughter whose name shall be
Shari Lynn. A son whose name you shall pick, he will
win. Will it be James or will it be Terry or will
it be another name. Name him dear and name him well for
his name may be his fame.
You may be gone from our sight but you will never be gone from hearts. Until we are together again, we love you and always will. Love always your children Billy, Shari & Linda

This is her youngest daughter again. It's the day after her service and there is one more thing I want you to know about my mother. Throughout her life she wrote poetry and I want to share two for them with you. The first one you will read is about my brother William (Billy) and the other is about my sister Shari.
Peek-A-Boo. Peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo, I see you, Hair so golden and eyes so blue. Peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo,here's a kiss, Just for you with your tiny little fists. You're so pretty and oh so sweet, I knew you were mine, even before we did meet.
Even though you're little, you'll be my sunshine, And I'll forever thank the Lord that you're mine. When I hold you in my arms at night, I want to hold you ever so tight. When you were born on that special day, I was very proud as in my arms you lay.
Peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo, now you're home, For mommy and daddy to cuddle you some. Peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo, you're our little boy, Who's going to bring us so much joy. We'll tell you all about the Lord above, For He sent you for us to love.

Donna was the sweetest, kindest person I had the pleasure to know. She would do anything to help anyone out. She was a very patriotic person and would walk up to anyone who served to shake their hand and to thank them for their service. She will be very missed here on earth but I know she is in heaven now with the lord looking over on all her family and loved ones. Gone too soon but will never be forgotten.

I'm her youngest daughter and the memory I want to share with you today is one we would always bring up and laugh about, we were just talking about it just a few weeks ago. So here we go, my family and I went to New York to visit her parents (my grandparents) I was in my early teens. But before I start the story let me tell you my grandmother was legally blind. So while there we had to the grocery store. Mom was driving, grandma was in the passenger seat and I was in the backseat. To get to the store you had to cross a busy highway. When mom came to a stop she was looking left to she if she had it and instead of looking right she asked her mom(remind you she was blind)if she had it and her mom said yes. That's when I yelled and told her no she didn't. Mom hit the breaks and asked her mom why did you tell me I had it knowing you can't see and her mom replied with why would you ask me when you know I can't see. I'll miss reminiscing this with her. And what I will remember forever until I see her again was the last thing she said to me was "I love you, baby girl. "

Linda and family, Cayce and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. I didn't get to spend a lot of time with Donna but, the time I did spend with her, she treated me just like family. She was one of the sweetest and funniest ladies I ever met. It was so obvious how much she cared about her family and she was a true patriot. I know that our world gets a little dimmer when we lose someone like her, but heaven will rejoice at her arrival. We love you and will certainly be praying for peace and strength for you all as you go through this difficult time. Revelation 21:4 - And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

It hard to believe that you are gone. I couldn't of have asked for a better person to be my mother-in-law. What I loved about Donna was her personality, when you asked for her opinion she would honestly give it, weather you liked it or not. Donna always from day one over 27 years ago when i first met her she always treated me like i was one of her own. Donna first of all loved God, her family, and her country. Donna would do anything in this world to help someone. She will be greatly missed, but I know that she is in Heaven looking down upon us, until we meet again.
