Something Special

For a beloved Husband, Father and Friend

“We little knew the day 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, but you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, you are always at 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.”

School Days

“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.”
