Dora is like an old song

grown sweeter with the years.

A mother who shared our joys

and wiped away our tears.

Dora is that special someone who looked

for goodness in everything we did.

A person who always loved,

to share a crust of bread and a cup of tea.

Happy are we to have had her in our lives

to walk beside us through the years.

In the days and years to follow,

Your love, your kindness, your amazing selflessness.

You will never be forgotten.

Our hearts go with you,

Your loving family.
