Camargo -- In Memory of Mary Jean Camargo November 21, 1944 - December 10, 2001Our beloved mother, wife, and grandmotherOur hearts are filled with sadness, Our hearts are filled with grief, Our memories are not faded, Stuck in a year of disbelief. Our hearts are still broken, Our faces show the strain, The sadness and madness consume us, Every thought brings us to the pain. As a mother and grandmother you have nurtured us, Our morals, our love, and our being, As a wife you have loved someone, being his hope, his love, and his queen. Even though we miss you, sadly, Giving your love to us, so pure, That's one gift you gave us, A gift of love and how it can endure. A mother to her daughter, A father to his son, We all miss you, lady, And you'll always be Our #1.
