A Mother’s Love

It is with a heavy heart I share with you the news of the death of Cherry, dearly loved mother of George my Son-in Law.

I have only known Cherry for the past three years and was drawn to her open friendly nature. Elly was introduced shortly after she met George and was immediately accepted and loved by Cherry and indeed all the family.

Cherry had a lovely home and was at her happiest when, like a mother hen she had all the family round her table. She was privileged to see her family grow, increase and multiply and I was honoured to witness and be part of a large happy family gathering round her table last Christmas.

May Cherry rest easily now her suffering is over and my prayer for Sam her husband, George and all the family is to find acceptance in the warm happy memories and love of a very special wife and mother.

God’s Masterpiece Is Mother

God took the fragrance of a flower…
The majesty of a tree…
The gentleness of morning dew…
The calm of a quiet sea…
The beauty of the twilight hour…
The soul of a starry night…
The laughter of a rippling brook…
The grace of a bird in flight…
Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,
And when his masterpiece was through
He called it simply – Mother.

  1. Sad news, Grannymar. Cherry sounds like she was a wonderful wife and mother, and friend to many – even her pretty name makes me feel warm and comfortable. The poem is beautiful – perhaps it could be included in her funeral service?

    My heart goes out to you all today and especially Cherry’s immediate family. Sincerest condolences.

  2. My sincere condolences to Cherry’s family and to you, she sounds like she was a lovely lady. You picked a beautiful poem.

  3. Oh GrannyMar, I’m so sorry to hear about this. We were only speaking about her last week. My deepest sympathies to Elly and George and of course Sam. We don’t have to ‘know’ people to understand the sadness of such a loss. Your tribute is very sweet.

  4. I’m very sorry for your loss Grannymar….and for George and Elly’s loss. My deepest sympathy to you all. May her many friends and family live on beautiful memories of her.

  5. Grannymar,

    It is only now, almost 3 months after Moms passing that I have been brave enough to read your beautiful words. Your choice of poem is truly beautiful.

    I miss her more and more every day but I know that her love surrounds us all and that she is happy with her maker.

    Thank you for your words and for your tribute to a beautiful, warm, loving person… my mother.

  6. Welcome Daphne and thank you.

    Cherry was as you say a beautiful, warm, loving person with a great welcome for everyone into her home and into her heart.

    Take time, take care and know you are surrounded with love.
