We little knew that morning
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 did not go alone;
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
You love is still our guide
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.
