Sarah "Francis" Glaspie
"A Tribute To Our Loving Mother"
Your gentle face and patient smile
With sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.
The voice is mute and stilled the heart,
That loved as well and true,
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
From one so good as you.
You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore.
As time goes by we miss you more,
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your vacant place.
