She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. This is the legacy we have from you. You taught us love and how to fight, you gave us strength, you gave us might. A stronger person would be hard to find, and in your heart you were always kind. You fought for us all on one way or another, not just as a wife, not just as a mother. For all of us, you gave your best , now the time has come for you to rest. So go in peace, you've earned your sleep, your love in our hearts, we'll eternally keep.
