In Memory:
(by: KNC)

A thousand times we needed you
A thousand times we cried
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died
A heart of gold stopped beating
two twinkling eyes closed to rest
God broke our hearts to prove he only took the best
Never a day goes by that you’re not in our heart and our soul.
