If you searched the world over you'd never find
A sister more loving or tender then mine.
To a stranger or a friend she was always so kind
A more Christlike person would be hard to find.
Her "thank - you " came easy when you lightened her load
And she in return helped many down life's road.
All of her earthly roles she so happily fulfilled
And we know those roles live on with her still.
When her loved ones have joys and sorrows to bear
They will feel of her presence and know she is near.
She'll never be idle, the Lord's work she'll do
Until once again she will embrace each of you.
We love and miss you very much
