We knew that morning that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly;
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you;
you did not go alone
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories;
your love is still our guide;
and though we cannot
you are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same;
but as God calls
us one by one,
the chain will link again.
