A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you.
You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
and in your heart you were always kind.
You fought for all us in one way or another.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep.
When you heard the word mother or best friend Kim was the one who popped up in your mind. She dedicated her life to her only living son Ryan and her husband Ron.
