We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.
You left us precious memories
Your love is still our guide.
Although we cannot see you
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.
