If flowers grow in heaven Lord, then pick a bunch for us.  Then place them in our mother’s arms and tell her that they’re from us.  Tell her that we love and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.  Mom, you will be truly missed by your family and will always be held dear to our hearts.  “Good Night Mom!”
