When I grow up I want to be
 Exactly what you are to me
 Strength that has a special touch
 Flowing with your love so much
 Courage of a special kind
 Love to hold your hand in mine
 Pride to fill a river wide
 Exactly how I feel inside
 Floppy hats and high heeled shoes
 Follow you within life's bloom
 Each and every single day
 Touch my heart with things you say

 Life in childhood now begins
 With so much love we share within
 Lets dress up and just have fun
 Each new day has just begun
 Seeing you with special grace
 Time to love and just embrace
 Children in a special way
 Reaching out with love each day
 Childhood spent now shared so true
 See me looking up to you
 Heart is filled with love to share
 Precious gifts in life we wear.
 ~ I love you Sissy ~

Lorraine passed away on February 18, 2003.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you

all for your kindness and love that you so

graciously offered during her short battle with

cancer. Her daughter's and I will be extremely

grateful for the "love" that you shared with us

during this difficult time, for a very long time to come.


We thank you from the bottom of our hearts

for the beauty of you all.


"I met a stranger one day who became my friend,

Then I realized that in life there truly are "no strangers"

but gentle hearts that truly know the meaning of

kindness and love. For this I thank you from the

very depths of my heart and soul.
