WAKE Hilary My mam and Me Remember mam when I was born, kicking and screaming and nothing worn, you brought me up and fed me well, when I'd done something wrong only you could tell. When I was young you'd sit me on your knee, as I got older it was always 'mum what's for tea'. You taught me what was right, you taught me what was wrong, but you can't anymore because you are sadly gone. Now you have gone to a place where all the good people go, we miss you so much and I want you to know. We love you mam, you were the best, you'll be safe in Heaven now you are finally laid to rest.
