"The Broken Chain"
We little knew the day, that God would call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, in death, we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you; 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.
And though we cannot see you, you are always at 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.
