As free as a Hummingbird, she spreads her wings and flies.
Passing through life fast, she will be remembered
Not a regret left behind because her life was full.
As free as a Hummingbird, she spreads her wings and flies.
A heart for everyone and a love she shared.
So beautiful that she was gone in a blink of an eye.
As free as a Hummingbird, she spreads her wings and flies.
Our hearts ache for her, but she is with us.
A love we all have for her will always be there.
As free as a Hummingbird, she spreads her wings and flies.
In life we loved her, and as she is gone we will love her still.
In our hearts forever she will be.
As free as a Hummingbird, she spreads her wings and flies
She wants us to love and to give.
So that’s what we’ll do because she never stopped loving and caring for us.
As free as a Hummingbird, she spreads her wings and flies.
We’ll see her again one day.
She’ll greet us with a smile and love.
As free as a Hummingbird, she spreads her wings and flies.

  5. My love and prayers are with you all. Mamaw was such a loving and caring lady. She treated each of us as if we were her own. The world had lost an amazing soul.

  6. She had 2 other step sons too but this evil cubt left my father and bob out. This lousy pile of shit forbid my grandfather from seeing us. Fine fight with the adults we were just kids then. I hope this pile of shit burns in hell.

  7. My Aunt Mart was a beautiful lady both inside and out. She never had a bad word about anybody! I miss driving my momma up to Martinsville for a visit and watching the 2 enjoy their time together! I hope the 2 of you are having a blast up in Heaven!
