Loretta Slater


In loving memory of Loretta Slater on your birthday, January 25.

Happy Birthday in Heaven

Is there a party up in Heaven

To celebrate today?

Did angels frost a cake for you

Or sing to start your day?

We’re celebrating you down here

As they must be above

I truly hope your special day

Is filled with peace and love.

This day was always special

As we gathered around you here

We’d sing and laugh and celebrate

Your day with so much cheer.

I miss those special moments

That we shared throughout the years

It’s hard to find that on this day

My eyes now fill with tears.

I’m trying hard to smile for you

But, oh that empty chair,

I turn around and find myself

Still shocked that you’re not there.

Please know that I’m thinking of you

As I go throughout each day

This day is very special though

Because it’s your birthday.

Happy Birthday

We love and miss you,

Russell, Karen (Matthew), Debbie (Eric, Zack) ♥
