We little knew that morning
That God would call you home.
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 a part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left amusing memories,
your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
youre always at 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.
