A special thank you to Dr. Suen and the staff of the Sturgeon Community Hospital for all their help and keeping our Mom comfortable.


You came here some time ago
But your visit had to end
The heavens called, you had to go
Now we're left to mend


You left us sad
So sad you see
But with no pain
You're both now free


Free to fly
Free to soar
Your time on earth
Is no more


We know you're happy
And full of glee
Although we're sad
You're both now free.
