In Memory of our mother, Mary Mamajek:

I am home in heaven, dear one.
Oh, so happy and is bright.
There is perfect joy and beauty,
In this evelasting light.
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 waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand; Do it now while life remaineth.
You shall rest in God's own land,
When the work is all completed.
He will gently call you home,
Oh the rapture of that meeting, Oh the joy to see you come.
