“A Limb Fallen”
A limb has fallen from the Family Tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.”
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song,
The good life I lived while I was still strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul at rest.
Remembering all, how truly I was blessed.
Continue tradition, no matter how small
Go on with your life, don’t just stare at the wall.
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin,
Until the day comes when we’re together again.
Expression of Gratitude
The Family wishes to extend their sincere appreciation for all acts of kindness
shown to them during their bereavement.
