A beacon of light
Spreading your love Throughout your fight Nothing more important than being a true Servant
this you’ve achieved and it's why we’re all hurting. Your love will never leave us
Jehovah’s promise stands true We can’t wait for paradise when we’re running straight to you.”
We love you mom
