In loving memory of

our sister and aunt,

Deborah Tompkins Powell.

February 7, 1963 - January 16, 2015

If Roses Grow in Heaven

If roses grow in Heaven Lord

Please pick a bunch for us.

Place them in her arms

And tell her they’re from us.

Tell her that we love and miss her

And when she turns to smile,

Place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,

We do it every day,

But there is an ache within our heart

That will never go away.
