In tears we saw you sinking,
And watched you fade away
Our hearts were almost broken
We wanted you to stay
But when we saw you sleeping
So peacefully and free from pain
How could we wish you back with us
To suffer that again
It breaks our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Lovingly submitted,
The Family
