Little did we know that day, that GOD was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, the day GOD called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide.
Although we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
As GOD calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
