In Loving Memory of your Dear Mother

When you speak of her speak not with tears
for thoughts of her should not be sad.
Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort
for her life was rich because of you.
And though for now you had to part,
though to part she did not choose;
She’ll be with you along life’s path,
Forever In Your Heart.

From: Brenda Marko

To the Wowk family: Sincere condolences for your loss.
