In Memory of Magdalene Olivia [Blackwood] Peddie (1919-1999)
Love she gave, unconditionally
There's always a little more to extend
And a little more time to spare
It's never too much, too far or too high;
She'll always be there in person or kind
And where there's a need
She'll go down on her knees
For collection and tithes
She would give her last dime
But never did worry how she'll get by
As always, she'd say: "God will provide".
Proud of her belief; She taught us how to love;
Then as time goes by
She would watch us with pride
What better gift could she give -
than teaching the ways to Christ?
Since that October day, when I said my goodbyes
I often think of her with tear filled eyes
But something inside says she'd want me to Smile
Now, there's always a smile on my face
And in my heart shall remain.
