We knew that morning 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, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.
You left behind beautiful memories and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side,
our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same,
but as God will call us one by one the chain will link again. Amen.
