Friendship is a precious gift that cannot be bought or sold
But its value is far greater than a mountain made of gold
For gold is cold & lifeless, it can neither see or hear
It cannot bring you comfort or reach out a helping hand near
So when you ask God for a gift, be thankful if he sends
Not diamonds, pearls, or riches, but the love of real true friends.
Thank you for your caring and sharing during the time of illness and passing of our Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Godmother and Friend.
-Darryl, Reggie, and Brian Roberts
