    Wonderful Mother.
    God made a wonderful mother,
    A mother who never grows old;
    He made her smile of the sunshine.
    And He moulded her heart of pure gold;
    In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
    In her cheeks fair roses you see;
    God made a wonderful mother,
    And He gave that dear mother to me.

    I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought of you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, and often speak your name. All I have are memories, and your picture in a frame. Your memories are a keepsake, for which I’ll never part. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart.

    I was blessed with the best aunts and uncles that a nephew could ever want, and Aunt Donna was surely one of my favorites. I have many fond memories of her, and will forever cherish those memories in my heart. She was a great lady and helped raise a great family. My thoughts are with my cousins, Steve and Sandy, Denise and Ray, and Lynda, as well as all the Jones Family. Rest in peace, Aunt Donna……I love you!
