IN REMEMBRANCE OF FORTUNATA DELUCA
Your gentle face and patient smile
With sadness we recall.
You had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.
The voice is mute and stilled the heart,
That loved us well and true,
Ah, bitter was the trial to part,
From one so good as you.
You are not forgotten loved one,
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last,
We will remember thee.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by we miss you more,
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your vacant place.
