In Loving Memory of
July 30, 2003
When we look back upon our lives
No matter when or where
At every age and step and stage
Mom, you were always there.
You made us feel so safe and loved,
Your kindness meant so much.
We can still hear your words of cheer
And feel your gentle touch.
When we’d set out to bring about
Some special dream or plan,
Your pride in us was plain to see,
You were our biggest fan.
You’d hang in there to help us bear the stresses and the stings
And always know when to let go
So we could try our wings.
Still today was are glad to say
We feel your loving care
In the deepest part of our grateful hearts.
Mom, you were always there!
We love you and miss you,
Dorothy, donna, Joe, Linda, Mary, Michael and Anna
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
