In Memory

Happy Mother’s Day With Love and Gratitude to My Beloved Mother Mrs. Eunice Rodgers 01/12/27 - 03/10/11

My Dearest Mama They say there is a reason and that time will heal, but neither time nor reason has changed the way I feel at losing you. This has been such a challenging year without your physical presence. All I have are memories which are a keepsake, with which I’ll never part. You always let me know I had a Mama – who cared about me, who believed in me, who was there for me. Growing up with that kind of love and support made such a difference in my life — it made me who I am today. I am so blessed for the special bond we shared. It’s so good to know that wherever life takes me, I’ll never be far away from you because I carry you with me always in a special corner of my heart.

My Mother Kept A Garden

My Mother kept a garden.
A garden of the heart,
She planted all the good
things,
That gave my life it’s start.



She turned me to the sunshine, And encouraged me to
dream:
Fostering and nurturing
The seeds of self-esteem.


And when the winds and
rains came,
She protected me enough;
But not too much, she knew
I’d need



To stand up strong and
tough.

Her constant good example,
Always taught me right from
wrong;
Markers for my pathway
To last my whole life long.



I am my Mother’s garden,
I am her legacy.
And I hope today she feels
the love,
Reflected back from me.
With Much Love On
Mother’s Day,
Elsie, Richard & Children
