Rey -- Aurelia L. Rey, Mom, Grandmother, Sister. We love you and miss you.MOTHERS NEVER DIE... THEY JUST KEEP HOUSE IN THE SKY...When we are children, we are happy and gay, our Mother is young and she laughs as we play then as we grow up, she teaches us truth, and lays life's foundation in the days of our youth, for all that she taught us and all that we did when we were so often just"bad little kids." We will often remember and then realize that Mothers are special and wonderfully wise... And as we grow older, we look back with love knowing that Mothers are"gifts from above." And when she"goes home" to receive her reward she will dwell in God's kingdom and "keep house, for the Lord."So dry tears of sorrow, for Mothers don't die... They just move in with God and"keep house in the sky"and there in God's kingdom, Mothers watch from above to welcome their children with their undying love!
