In memoriam: Vivienne Elizabeth Mott Ambery

An earthly angel has been summoned back to the sky.

She was a gift, just like baby Jesus was to you and I.

I call her name, but there is no response.

Everything is silent, and I cannot hear her song.

Something is wrong, something is not right,

for my angel is gone and I no longer see her light.

Why did she go?

Where has she gone?

Somewhere over the rainbow,

where all questions are now known.

Love your niece,

Dorothy (Barth) Rossman
