Ruth Herd

Happy Birthday Mom Ruth Herd 03/04/1940 - 05/12/2012

Tonight I looked up to the moon Thought to myself, you were gone too soon

Suddenly I realized, God has a plan He needed some help, He had chosen your hand He saw all your strength, it was then that He knew You were to be one of His chosen few To dwell in His house and garnish His wings He decided to bring you to much better things No worries or care, no fears, no more tears All of the mortal things you carried for years At last in a place full of joy and of grace My wish, one more time to see your sweet face I treasure your memory, your love even more

I am who I am because of you I am sure Your love and your teaching I hold in my heart I look to the moon and we're never apart

Today, Tomorrow, Always You are Loved and Missed Michele, Jim and Fergie
