In God’s garden up above,
Stands a rose we dearly love.
She stands with petals open wide,
Watered by the tears we’ve cried.
Her fragrance fills our lives each day,
Locked in our hearts she will always stay.
Love always – Alan, Karen, Heather and Cristy and families.
In memory of our beautiful friend. We miss you.
Loved always. – Glenda and Jaffa xxx
