Lord look around you flower garden in Heaven,
And please pick the best for us,
Place them in our father's arms
And tell him they're from us,
Tell him that we love and miss him
And Lord, when he turns and smiles,
Place a kiss upon his cheek
And hug him for a while,
Because remembering him will be easy
We'll do it everyday
But there will always be an ache within our hearts
That will never go away.
We love you Dad,
Jim & Marci
