    For Teresa’s children from Teresa sister.

    “Mothers never really die”
    Death beckoned her with outstretched hand
    and whispered softly of an “UNKNOWN LAND”
    but she was not afraid to go
    for though the path she did not know
    she took death’s hand without a fear,
    for He who safely brought her here,
    had told her He would lead the way,
    into Eternity’s bright way…
    and so she did not go alone
    into the “Valley that’s unknown”
    She gently took death by the hand
    and journeyed to the “Promised Land”…
    and there with step so light and gay,
    she polishes the sun by day,
    and lights the stars that shine at night
    and keeps the moonbeams silvery bright…
    For MOTHERS really never die,
    they just “KEEP HOUSE UP IN THE SKY”
    and in the heavenly home above
    they wait to welcome those they love.

    For My Sister, Teresa Valda My Forever Friend
    Like twins, I feel I’m one of two.
    Struggling here sister without you.
    Why, oh why did you have to go?
    My heart is sore and it pains me so.

    Others didn’t really understand.
    Ours was truly an intricate bond.
    We’ve had harsh words and stupid fights,
    But there was no denying we were pretty tight.

    You stood me high upon a pedestal,
    And I felt your love till the very end.
    You were proud to call me sister
    And prouder still to call me friend.

    Through all the years, the smiles and tears,
    For all those times you showed you cared.
    For being at my side when I needed you there,
    You’ve been my sister for many years.

    Thanks for your loyalty, love, and generosity.
    I’m the one who fell short, and that’s a pity.
    For the special things only you can do,
    For all those things, I thank you!

    Time and space may not be our friend,
    But the yearning in my heart will never end.
    I’m proud to call you my sister,
    Happier still to call you my friend.

    Our times together are not over yet.
    Your face, your voice I’ll never forget.
    I’ll seek you out wherever I go
    Because I know, Sister, you love me so.

    Stay in the light until we meet again.
    We’ll do it better next time without the pain.
