“Sometimes late at night

I lie awake and watch her sleeping

She’s lost in peaceful dreams

So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark

And the thought crosses my mind

If I never wake up in the morning

Would she ever doubt the way I feel

About her in my heart

If tomorrow never comes

Will she know how much I loved her

Did I try in every way to show her every day

That she’s my only one

And if my time on earth were through

And she must face this world without me

Is the love I gave her in the past

Gonna be enough to last

If tomorrow never comes

‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life

Who never knew how much I loved them

Now I live with the regret

That my true feelings for them never were revealed

So I made a promise to myself

To say each day how much she means to me

And avoid that circumstance

Where there’s no second chance to tell her how I feel

If tomorrow never comes

Will she know how much I loved her

Did I try in every way to show her every day

That she’s my only one

And if my time on earth were through

And she must face this world without me

Is the love I gave her in the past

Gonna be enough to last

If tomorrow never comes

So tell that someone that you love

Just what you’re thinking of

If tomorrow never comes.”

But I think she knows now, how I loved her, and how much I regret letting all that time pass without telling her so.

Gramma…you were always such a big part of my heart. That will never change. And someday, I will see you, & be able to hug you, and tell you this firsthand, both of us healthy again.

I will miss knowing you are here on this earth with us. Such a beautiful, vibrant Soul you always were, and always will be.

All my Love now & Forever…

A twinkle in her eye, a smile to light up the morning, walking to the beat of her own drummer, that’s how I’ll always remember Frankie. Precious to her daughter Kitty, and lots of love between them; a wonderful example for all of us. Thank you for being such a sweetheart at TOPS Frankie. I know Kitty has made you proud; she’s an inspiration to me. I praise God for both of you!
