If roses grow in heaven, Lord please pick a bunch for me, place them in my Mother’s arms and tell her they’re from me. Tell her I love and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while. Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day, but there’s an ache within my heart that will never go away. By Delores M. Garcia
We love you Mom xoxo
