In Our Hearts
We thought of you today.
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have are memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our hearts.
Love, Your Sisters…
I will miss you so much. I will miss your smile and your laughter and your great story telling. I am at peace knowing you and your dad are together again.
Love Always, Auntie Elaine.
