God put Mama here many years ago,
To bring joy and comfort to other souls.
She gave Him her heart when young, and so,
She served Him well whatever His goals.
Mama met Papa and fell in love,
Then she won him to the Lord.
The two became one ‘neath heaven above,
Together she prayed and read His word.
In God’s love they raised their family,
There were six of us in all;
But God called one an angel to be,
The others remained to wait His call.
Papa went home in nineteen-sixty one,
He’d raised his family on God’s word.
With hard work and love for every one,
He taught them to love and serve the Lord.
Mama went up home on the Lord’s Day,
That wonderful Mama of mine.
Now she can hear angels sing and play.
There couldn’t have been a better time.
Can almost see her arriving there,
Papa watching and waving, looking down.
Grandpa, Grandma, Julia, Carl and Emma
All waiting while she gets her crown.
Now they’re all together at last,
Greeting each other with a holy kiss;
Sharing precious memories of the past,
Praising the Lord for heaven’s bliss.
Written by Alfred Tennyson Vaughn, my Maternal
Grandfather and son-in-law to Clara (Mishcke) Herzog.
