They were wonderful parents to Marlene,
Darlene, Harold Jr. and Ricky.
God bless you Mom and Dad.
~May 10, 2001~
Life just doesn't seem the same, as we go on day to day.
You now have seven grandchildren, our family tree has grown.
And in your children and grandchildren, are seeds of love you've sown.
We wish you could be here with us to share our times, good and bad.
We realize over the years now, the wonderful parents we had.
Like all children of years gone by, we wish we had the chance.
To say "I love you" one more time, or your precious faces to glance.
We see the errors of our way, since you both have died.
And we've learned from our mistakes, of how our own children to guide.
We know that since your loss, and from our heartfelt sorrow.
You have to respect your parents today, as they may not be here tomorrow.
Mom and Dad we love you and we're thinking of you both today.
As we put into words our feelings, in this very precious way.
We miss you both so dearly and with God's love this message is sent.
We'll see you again someday Mom and Dad when our days on earth are spent.
Marlene Fay Porter
