Please share a memory at www.sullivanfuneraldirectors.com "She always leaned to watch for us
Anxious if we were late.
In winter by the window,
In summer by the gate.
And though we mocked her tenderly
Who had such foolish care,
The long way home would seem more safe,
Because she waited there.
Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She never could forget,
And so I think that where she is
She must be watching yet.
Waiting till we come home to her
Anxious if we are late
Watching from Heaven's window
Leaning from Heaven's gate." "If flowers grow in heaven Lord,
then pick a bunch for me then
place them in my mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile."
