If Flowers Grow in Heaven
If flowers grow in heaven Lord,
Then pick a bunch for me then
Place them in my mother's arms
And tell her they are from me
Tell her that I love and miss her
And when she turns to smile
place a kiss upon her cheek and
hold her for awhile for me.
No food or flowers please. Memorial contributions may be sent to:
