God saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be So he put his arms around you And whispered, “Come to Me”.

You left us in the morning, When softly came the dawn. And since you never said good-bye, It’s hard to think you’re gone.

Oh, too you left us weeping, Lonely and with aching hearts; But we know the angels are keeping you Where sweet joys will ne’re depart.

In our hearts the memory lingers, Sweetly, tender, fond and true There’s not a day, Dear Mother, That we do not think of you.

A Golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.

I had the pleasure and honor of getting to know Melva through my father. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. She always had a welcoming smile. I will miss her greatly and think of her often.
