KIRKPATRICK — Hilary 3rd Anniversary. Precious memories of a dear mother who passed away 12th February 2007.

God gave a mother I was proud to own

How much I miss her will never be known

She shared my problems and helped me along

If I walk in her footsteps I will never go wrong

I had a wonderful mother and I loved her to the end

I lost two precious things, my mother and my friend.

Sadly missed by daughter Linda, son-in-law Pat and grandson Lee
