Ward and Tammy and Marietta's family,
We are so sorry to learn about Marietta's passing. I hope you find the same kind of comfort in this poem that I found when I lost my father.

If roses grow in heaven, Lord, then pick a bunch for me. Place them in my mother's arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her that we love her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
