Sad are our hearts that love you

Silent are our tears that fall

Living here without you

Is the hardest part of all

You did so many things for us

Your heart was kind and true

And when we needed someone

We could always count on you

In life we loved you dearly

In death we love you still

In our hearts you hold a place

That no one will ever fill

A million times we needed you

A million times we cried

If love alone could have saved you

You never would have died.

Until we meet again.

May you rest in peace always.

We will love you forever Mae.
