  • Poet’s Corner

    Dear Mom,

    When I remember childhood

    You were always there

    Teaching me and guiding me

    With tender love and care.

    How special you did treat me

    With values good and true.

    I’m so thankful Mom

    That God gave me to You!

    In loving memory of

    Edna Marie Breeden
