Looking back I have only fond memories of Natalie
From the very first day that she breathed life
I knew that she would accomplish so much
Even before she became a mother and wife

She was an extremely happy baby
Something she lived throughout her life
One of her greatest accomplishments was
That she became an awesome mother and wife

But I’m getting way ahead of myself
As she grew older she made many friends
Some would be there for a little while
And some a friendship that never ends

She learned so much before she started school
Her teachers were amazed from day one
My wife and I planned to have another child
I prayed that it would be a son

Then we had another beautiful daughter
Nat took her under her wings
Always being the big sister
She taught her so many things

In high school Natalie did very well
She would even excelled in drama
But whenever she needed good advice
She would always ask her mama

I was always there to support what she did
She made the both of us so very proud
We would sing her praises every day
And even boasted about her very loud.

Then came the day when she started college
She wanted to teach and make a difference
She wanted to become a principal
Using her knowledge and common sense

In that time Nat would find happiness in marriage
She and her husband raise a beautiful family
Two sons and a daughter that made us very proud
What else could she accomplish that we didn’t see

She eventually became a grade school principal
Achieving everything that she could be
But somewhere in that space of time
Was something that none of us could foresee

In the end although there is much sadness
And only God knows why she took her life
I still have the fondest memories of my Nat
A Beautiful daughter mother and loving wife
