Remember Her
Remember her laugh, her grin, her stories,

and her smile,
And remember these things for quite a while.
We all know she loved being a wife.
Her husband, children and grandchildren
were the love of her life.
We will remember her with laughter and tears,
and will never forget her in the upcoming years.
Don’t be afraid to say her name
As we will know it will never be the same.
Heaven gained a new Angel Today
Soar High Donna as you will never be forgotten.
