Big Mama,
I wish I could have seen you before you passed but know that I love you and I will miss you so much! Definitely will miss your red and green eyebrows, and your keyboard playing, and you introducing yourself to everyone as “Big Mama.” You are the world’s Big Mama! Your funniest moments were always your unintentional ones and I think that is what I’ll miss most. Say hi to Daddy for me please, I know you two are rejoicing in Heaven. You always told me how you couldn’t wait to see him again and I am thankful you are together now. I love you! Tell Daddy I love him too, and I miss him so much. I’ll see you on the other side of the stars! A bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck.
-Madolyn Elaine Middleton aka “Mike’s Girl”

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Mama, thank you for being such a wonderful mother! I love and miss you! Until we meet again, you can be sure that I will always carry your heart in my heart!

Mama, You were the best Mother ever! Everything I am and everything about me that is good came from you. Thank you for loving me completely unconditionally for the whole of my life. Thank you for guiding me to salvation through our precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for being “The Wind Beneath My Wings”! I love you with an indescribable, immeasurable love forever and always!!!
