A cluster of beautiful

memories sprayed with a

million tears

Wishing God had spared you

for a few more years

Thanks for the years you gave

us and for the happy times we

shared.

We know that when you left us

You knew how much we cared

Again our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same

But as God calls us one by one our chain will link again.
