She was always Mom to  her children

Though her given name was Hattie Irene

One thing we learned early on 

She loved God with all of her heart


She could be stern but never harsh

Negative about life in general but not about God

She was a hard worker keeping up a home

For husband and seven children


But she always had time for the Bible and prayer

I will always remember her praying aloud for us

And laighing with us when we were silly

Encouraging us to live for the Lord


For Mom, God was her way of life

Not faultless, but blameless 

She lived a righteous life before us


Mom (c)2014 Quentin Clingerman
