In Loving Memory of Mary Kathy Breeding
She seems so far away yet her
Presence is still here today.
Her loving support was always near
Her advice was always clear.
Just when you thought no one seems to care
She was always there to wipe the tears.
We had many moments of joy and pride
We so wish she was still by our side.
We will never forget your loving smile
We know you will be gone only for a while.
When we reminisce about the things she used to say
We miss her and think she is so far away.
Sadly missed by family and friends.
