We thought of you today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday and the day before that too.

We think of you in silence and often speak your name. Now all we have are memories and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part. God has you in His keeping and we have you in our hearts!
