In Loving Memory of a Wonderful Daughter

Of all the special gifts in life however great or small,
To have you as a daughter, was the greatest gift of all.
May the winds of love blow softly and whisper in your ear,
I love and miss you DJ, and wish that you were here.
Deep in our hearts, your life is kept to love and cherish, not forget, No more
tomorrows we can share but yesterdays are always there. A silent thought, a
secret tear, keeps your memory ever near.
In our hearts forever —Love Mama.
