In Memoriam

Ann Karleen Lynch

February 17, 1951 - November 7, 2012

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord

Please pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my friend's arms

And tell her they're from me

Tell her I love her and miss her,

And when she turns to smile,

Place a kiss upon her cheek

And hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,

I will do it every day,

But there is an ache within my heart

That will never go away.
