In Loving Memory of

GERALDINE RISSMAN

March 6, 1936 - December 14, 1994

It has been 12 years since you left us.
And it seems like yesterday.
Not a single word was spoken.
Before g-d took you suddenly away.

Every time we pass the tennis club,
go up north or to the zoo,
Every time we see a great blue heron,
Our thoughts flow back to you.

You saw the world through rose colored glasses,
Enjoying each moment of your days,
We have tried to teach our children
Your philosophies and ways.

You were our Florence Nightengale, our Pearl Mesta,
Our Lucille Ball and Mrs. Clean.
All of your friends and family
Know exactly what we mean.

Mom, our hearts are still very broken,
There will never by anyone quite like you,
We know that you are watching and guiding us,
and we just want to say we love and miss you.

Your Loving Family
