Hail Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with thee,

blessed art thou among women,

and blessed is the fruit

of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners,

now and at the

hour of our death.


Guardian Angel from

heaven so bright,

watching beside me

to lead me aright,

fold thy wings round me,

and guard me with love,

softly sing songs to me

of heaven above.


May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rains fall soft upon your fields,

And until we meet again,

may God hold you in the

hollow of His hand.

Beautiful things in this life

are manifold tis true,

we count the stars by thousands,

the birds and flowers, too;

The sunsets and dawnings,

rare beauties far and near,

but all the wide world over,

there’s just one “Mother Dear.”

God grant me the serenity to accept the

things I cannot change, the courage to

change the things I can, and the wisdom

to know the difference.

When those we love go

away, they never really

leave us; they are with us

now, wherever we are.

Those whom we have

cherished,live on forever,

for love wraps itself

around the heart.

God grant that I may live to fish

For another shining day.

But when my final cast is made

I then most humbly pray:

When nestled in Your landing net,

As I lay peacefully asleep,

You’ll smile at me and judge

That I’m “good enough to keep.”

God grant that I may live to fish

O Blessed St. Joseph, faithful

guardian and protector of virgins,

to whom God entrusted Jesus

and Mary, I implore you by the

love which did bear them,

to preserve me from every

defilement of soul and body,

that I may always serve them in

holiness and purity of love.


We hold you close within our hearts,

And there you shall remain.

To walk with us throughout our lives

Until we meet again.

So rest in peace dear loved one,

And thanks for all you’ve done.

We pray that God has given you

The crown you’ve truly won.

Just a prayer from

the family

who loved you,

Just a memory

fond and true,

In our hearts you

will live forever,

Because we thought

the world of you.

If tears could build a stairwell

and memories were a lane,

I would walk right up to Heaven

and bring you home again.

No farewell words were spoken,

no time to say good-bye…

You were gone before I knew it,

and only God knows why
