by her daughter Eunice

Tread softly my child for the road is stony

Take the wrong turn you may end up lonely

Give of your love, your wealth and strength

For only in giving will go the length,

Of the road through life

Give freely and gladly of all you own

Especially to those who feel their alone

For keeping a grasp on the things you don't need

Will hold you back and most surely impede

Your road through life

Try to keep smiling as you go through the years

Put on a brave front when you're near to tears

Always be cheerful through stresses and strife

You'll find it less wearing

On the road through life

When you come to the end and you take a rest

Be sure you can look back and say,

It was not much, but I did my best

As I went on my way,

Along the road through life

By Elsie Sullivan

In loving memory of our dearest Mum, grandmother and great grandmother
she lived the sentiments she wrote about in this poem 40 years ago and her strength of character,
tenacity and sheer will power are attributes she has passed on to us all, how lucky we are to have had her.

Always in our thoughts, her loving daughters Maxine and Eunice

This Mother’s Day I said a prayer for you in church,
we were celebrating Beatrice’s First Holy Communion.
On my travels I find a church or cathedral and light a candle,
you have lit up the world. xx

Sadly missed along life’s way,
Quietly remembered every day,

But in our hearts,
She’s always there.

Eunice and I went to Crosby Beach on the 2nd of January 2012 and scattered a dozen roses in honour of you.

I think you were laughing at us as we tried to scatter them and deal with the gale force winds, it was one of those very funny situations you always got a good laugh from.

We both love and miss you. Maxine and Eunice xx

Do not stand at my grave and weep;I am not there. I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow;I am the diamond glints on snow;I am the sunlight on ripened grain;I am the gentle autumn’s rain.When you awaken in the morning’s hush;I am the swift uplifting rushof quiet birds in circled flight.I am the soft stars that shine at night.Do not stand at my grave and cry:I am not there, I did not die.I remember you each day in so many ways. On December 2nd the fourth anniversary of your passing, I will remember. Your loving daughter, Maxine
