Little did we know how soon God was going to call your name

In life we loved you dearly in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts for you to leave, but you did not go alone, for you took a piece of all our hearts, when God called you home.

You left us wonderful memories; your love will always be our guide.

Although we cannot see you, we know you will always be at our side.

Our chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one…….


I am so sorry for your loss. It is still hard for me to understand why the young have to die.
Love you,
