No one knows how much we miss you,
No one knows the bitter pain we have
suffered since we lost you.
Life has never been the same.
In our hearts your memory lingers,
Sweetly tender, fond and true.
There is not a day, dear mom, that
we do not think of you.
Sadly missed and loved by,

Annie Fortier Miller, Ernest Miller
