GIFFEN, Elva
In loving memory of our dear mother, Elva GIFFEN, who passed away February 24, 2004.
Dear Lord, please take a message
To our loved one up above,
Tell Mom how much we miss her
And give her all our love.
We do not need a special day
To bring her to our minds,
A day we do not think of her
Is very hard to find.
They say that time heals all sorrow
And helps us to forget,
But time so far has only shown
How much we miss her yet.
In all the world we shall not find
Sosofta voice, so sweeta smile,
A heart so wonderfully kind.
If there are roses in heaven, Lord,
Please give some to her for us,
And tell her we will always care.
Forever in our hearts, Louise, Elaine, Earlene, Leota, David.
