In loving memory of my dear wife, dear mother and mother-in-law who passed away three years ago today.
It is sad to walk the road alone,
Instead of side-by-side
But to all there comes a moment
When the ways of life divide.
You gave us years of happiness
Then came sorrow and tears,
But you left us beautiful memories
We will treasure throughout the years.
- Love you forever, Ches, Gail, and Pat.
