Your smile and laughter are like sunshine You are the ultimate authority and our life line When you walk in, just your presence will light up a room. Just being around you causes others to bloom.

You are constantly attending to others And helping us with our own special needs. We are struck with awe by the life that you live, The constant unwavering service that you give. Mother, daughter, sister, wife, teacher, principal, leader, or friend The daily tangled problems you unweave and mend

Sooner or later all will ask, what do I do, what do I say To this vexing new problem that is compounding my stay?
