It does not need a special day,
To bring you to our minds,
For days without a thought of you,
Are very hard to find.
They say in time you do forget,
For some that may be true,
But no morning breaks, no night returns,
Without a thought of you.
Inserted by her loving husband David and family, 20 Nethermiln Road, West Kilbride.

He knew you had your share,
He gently closed your weary eyes,
And took you in his care.

Take her in your arms dear Lord,

And all that was unfair.

That we down here do not forget,
We love and miss her so.

We used to sit and talk awhile,
When you were feeling blue,
We'd try to cheer you up somehow,
When in our hearts we knew,
God may call at any time,
And we would have to part,
God has you in his keeping,
But you're always in our hearts.

Only a mother who has lost can say,
What it meant to part that day.
I lived in hope, I prayed in vain,
That God would make you well again.
But He decided we must part,
God took your hand and broke my heart.
