Cumberledge-In loving memory of our dear Mother, Grandmother and Great grandmother, Kitty Opal Cumberledge, who passed away 22 years ago, July 30, 1960.
What I would give if I could say,
I guess I'll go see mom today;
To hear her voice and see her smile,
To sit and talk with her awhile.
Those who have a Mother,
Treasurer her with care.
You never know her value
Till you see her empty chair.
You only have one Mother,
Patient, kind and true,
No other friend in all the world
Will be as true to you,
But when we saw her sleeping,
Peacefully, free from pain,
We could not wish her back.
To suffer that again.
I often think of how she died,
And could not say good bye.
For all of us she did her best,
May God grant her eternal rest.
Sadly missed and dearly Loved by Daughters, Sons-in-law, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
