A Tribute to Christine by Shelley Hansen

You walked into our lives,

Not so very long ago;

And though you weren’t our

real mother,

No one would ever know.

You made my father happy,

with your great outlook on life;

and as far as we’re concerned

you blessed him as his wife.

You blessed us with your gentleness, you were loving and so giving;

And you gave to us a role model

For gracious Christian living.

You cooked us meals and

made us treats,

You collected rose colored dishes;

And even loved our crazy boys,

With nothing but best wishes.

So, Christine, as you watch us now,

From heaven up above;

Thank you for your heart and life,

And every bit of love.
