~It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. A part of us went with you, the day God called you home. If tears could build a stairway, and heartaches make a lane, we’d walk our way to heaven, and bring you back again. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, in our hearts you hold a place no one could ever fill.~
