In Memory Of Grandma


Caring and thoughtful grandma,
Our love and memories of you
Never will be forgotten.
Sincere were your concern for us,
Often you gave sound moral advices.
Real were your encouragements,
Comforting words that you shared.
In your own little ways you helped us
Achieved our dreams.

Being our grandma you were great.
Respect for parents and obedience to God
Are few of the good virtues you taught us.
Till the end of your life you kept saying:
'On whatever you do, do it to glorify God! '

Prayer was your source of courage,
And the promises of Jesus your hope.
Death did not separate you from God,
In His kingdom you will reunite with Him.
Let all your good deeds be our guide,
Let your faith in the Lord become our legacy
Open for us to simulate.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
