Matilda, Dear mother and beloved sister. We gather here today to honor you as the wonderful mother who raised your three children to be God fearing, loving, honorable, dignified, caring, sincere and most of all that family comes first. Your guidance, tutelage and devotion to your children was unmatched. You protected them through good and bad times and did whatever it took to ensure that they were loved, nurtured, educated and cared for. And let's not to forget how well you cooked and fed them even to the very end when you could hardly stand due to your illness.
We gather here to honor you as the beloved sister who would do anything for your brothers and sisters and who loved each and every one very much just like the way your parents loved you. You always lent a helping hand especially in times of need and your door was always open to them.
Matilda, Dear mother and beloved sister, although we are heartbroken and miss you dearly here on earth, we celebrate your entrance into the Kingdom of God where you will forever live in jubilation and peace and watch over and guide your children, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and grandchildren, watching all of them lead their lives with all of the goodness and love the way you lived yours.
