The call was sudden, the shock severe. 

We never dreamed such grief was near. 

Only those who have lost can tell,

The pain of parting without farewell.


We miss you now, our hearts are sore,

As time goes by, we’ll miss you more. 

We cannot, Lord...see  Your purpose,

But all is well that is done by Thee.



Humbly Submitted ……………...The Family
