In memory of our mother Mary Mamajek:
I am home in heaven, dear ones.
Oh, so happy and is brght,
There is perfect joy and beauty,
In this ever lasting night,
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed.
I am now at peace forever
Safely home in heaven at last.
There is still work waiting for you
So, you must not idly stand.
Do it now while life remaineth.
You shall rest in God's own hand.
When the work is all completed.
He will gently call you home.
Oh th e rapture of that meeting.
Oh the joy to see you come.
