    Those we love remain with us
    for love itself lives on,
    and cherished memories never fade
    because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never
    be more than a thought apart,
    far as long as there is memory,
    they’ll live on in the heart.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family…..
