Our Precious Jewell
Our precious Jewel from us is gone
A voice we loved is still
A place is vacant in our hearts
That never can be filled
For when Deaths Angel came to call
Bertha answered, because, God is so great
And were so small, and there is nothing we need to fear.
For our faith in God makes all this clear.
My family, I say to you
For my sake and in my name
Live on and do all things the same
An in turn God will comfort you and hold you high
Never be afraid to die
For Ill be waiting for you in the sky.

She will be missed. Grandma we will
Never hear you say, dont let me catch you now.

We did not have your favorite banana pudding.
Dont wait until your Grandmother is no longer

In our hearts, its alright Grandma
