In Memory –

It broke our hearts to lose you,

but you did not go alone.

A part of us went with you,

the day God took you home.

If tears could build a stairway,

and heartaches make a lane,

we’d walk our way to heaven

and bring you back again.

In life we loved you dearly,

in death we love you still,

in our hearts you hold a place

no one could ever fill.
