陳毓禮,陳黃麗容兩夫婦的多年好友陳家驊,為表悼念,撰詩一首:

一個偶然,悠悠四十七載
既親慈,亦友愛
㡬許囘憶,㡬許歡樂
你已解脫俗身,在遙遠的髙處
與潔瑩清敘時
莫笑我營營役役
因在濁塵中,尚望留點清白。

A chance encounter in this world that lasted 47 years, With warmest and most loyal friendship and, Many fond memories.
Now you are rid of the earthly,
While chatting with Anne
Far away and up above
Please don't laugh
I toil and I toil
Just to keep a clean spot in this dirt filled world.
