"Our heart"

We little knew the 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 didn't 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,

And though we cannot see you

You are always at our side.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Hard working hands to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best
