Donna Joe Upton

Remembering all the yesterdays
The special growing years
Spent with friends and family
And shared with smiles and tears
Remembering all the yesterdays
And knowing as I do
The love in those sweet memories
Is all wrapped up in you.

    If Roses grow in Heaven,

    Lord please pick a bunch for me, Place them in my Mother’s arms and tell her they’re from me. Tell her I love her and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.

    Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day,

    but there’s an ache within my heart that will never go away.

    In my rose garden of memories, I see you standing there, flourishing with the flowers, my angel in disguise. If they grew in heaven Lord pick the perfect ones that bloom like the song in her eyes. Give them all to my Meemaw and tell her they’re from me. Her sunshine was sunshine, she had roses for cheeks. I’ll miss you always and forever, time truly wasn’t in our favor; this isn’t a goodbye, this is a; see you later. I love you so much Meemaw, I hope you thrive in heaven and I hope you and Peepaw are blossoming together again. Always and forever <3

    It feels like just yesterday that I came to your house to color and relieve some of my stress from every day life. Eddie runs around saying “Meemaw” still. You were one of the most amazing people I have EVER had the pleasure of having in my life. I could always rely on you to be there for me for absolutely anything and I miss you so much. I’m getting married in a few months and I feel nothing but overwhelming sadness knowing that you and peepaw and my mom won’t be there to share what is supposed to be one of the happiest days of my life. I miss your wise words, your strong hugs, your stubborn personality, your ability to make me laugh, even on my worst days, your unwavering love, your cooking, and most of all, you, in your absolute entirety. I love and miss you so much. I hope you’re doing better than I am. <3
