In Memory of You. If we could visit heaven, even for a day,maybe for a moment the pain would go away. I'd put my arms around you and whisper words so true,that living life without you is the hardest thing to do.No matter how we spend our days no matter what we do, no morning, no dawn or evening falls when we don't think of you.Rest in Peace.All our love David,Danny, Delpheia Cardell and Charles.
