Dear Lord in heaven, you took our mother home, Please send her with dad and Marlene, so she'll never be alone. You took away her pain, but left us here alone, We will miss her very much, you took your angel home. Please let her have her wings lord, to fly freely through the skies, Maybe then we can see her again, through our watering eyes. We know down deep in our hearts, our mom will be looking down, And we will always look back at her, with a smile not a frown. So let our mom know lord, we will love her forever so, And miss her everyday lord, for this, we all do know. Sadly missed by sons, Jimmy (Isabel), Peter (Shirley), Dwayne (Mary), daughter, Carol and son-in-law, Joey Pheifer.
