Terry Corkum

As your blood flows through our veins over the hills and far away, from the hidden valleys to the highest mountain tops, like a rushing river and a rolling stone, the memories I have of yesterday don't seem so long ago.
A bond like no other. A bond with long country roads, apple orchards, a little pony, even my little tractor pulling a little blue wagon.
Like my first tooth, my first wound or my first tear you were there to bring me to a smile and nurture me with care.
Time flew bye and than came your grandson. The love lingered on, You gave to him what you had given to me not so long ago.
Like cherry blossoms, rose gardens and beautiful flowers Jayden and I will cherish those memories for ever and ever, far beyond eternity . You are in our hearts as I know we are in yours.
Love you mom
God Bless
Terry and Jayden
