The names of these loved ones passed her lips in prayer each night. Mom loved playing her organ and piano , and spreading her spirituality joy far and wide. One day during an afternoon visit , mom and I were amazed as she recalled a poem learned from her beloved school teacher mother 75 years before . It bubled from her; "the kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth,One is nearer God's heart in a garden than anywhere on earth . For he broke it to us in a garden Under The olive-trees Where the angel of strength was the warden And the soul of the world found ease." The Family will receive friends on Wednesday December 20 , 2017 from 7-9 PM at the LYNCH FUNERAL HOME 318 WEST BROAD STREET HORSEHEADS ,NY .
