Mary Alice She was everything The blueprint, the foundation, the structure She was strong, she was beautiful Took care of me, you, your kids, her kids, Nieces, nephews, grandkids…EVERYBODY. Never complained. Dancing, Laughing, Drama Queen That was her. Attitude, Sass, Class That was her. Who couldn’t lover her? Mother, counselor, care-taker, friend Who was she to you? “Don’t cry when I’m when I’m gone, I want yall to party!” That’s what she said…so do that. Live life fully. Be happy, because she is. Get close and start loving, while you still have a chance. Forgive like she did. She was everything The blueprint, the foundation, the structure And she held us all together. Sarina
