We know you can no longer stay with us,

You fought long and hard to be with us.

We know you now watch over and protect us.

Although we cannot hear your voice or see your smiling face,

Instead every day you surround us with the singing of the birds,

The rising of the sun and the falling of night.

So many broken hearts are left behind,

But in our deepest despair our greatest comfort lies knowing

That you are now at peace with the angels and God.

So as time passes our tears will dry,

Our hearts will mend,

But our love for you will never end.


Your grandkids
