  • "There's a very special garden
    Where the trees of memory grow
    Nurtured by the kindness
    And concern that good friends show.
    The roots are cherished memories Of good times in the past.
    The branches tender promises that souls endure and last.
    It's a place of peace and beauty
    Where bright new hopes can start
    It's memory's lovely garden That soothes the hurting heart"
