As each night falls, we pray for you.
And throughout our lives, no matter where;
In our hearts you are always there.

There Is No Night Without A Dawning,
No winter without a spring,
And beyond the dark horizon,
Our hearts will once more sing.
For those who leave us for a while,
Have only gone away,
Out of a restless, care worn world,
Into a brighter day.

Your love for your family true,
You did your best for all of us,
We will always remember you.

Beyond the one you see.

No matter what we do,
A special place within our hearts,
Is always kept for you.

And there you shall remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.

A garden of the heart.

Still love her in death just the same.

As we treasure the memory of you.

Although we are apart,
Your spirit lives within me,
Forever in my heart.

And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?

They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

If I should go tomorrow,
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don’t you ever cry.

The years may wipe out many things,
But this they’ll wipe out never,
The memory of those happy days,
Which we have spent together

For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never,
Fade because a loved one’s gone.

The day we said goodbye,
And on that day a star was born,
The brightest in the sky

And though we seem apart,

In our memory you are near.
Loved, remembered, longed for always,
Bringing many a silent tear.

To share a laugh or two,
And if a tear should start to fall,
I’ll still be there for you.

TS32

So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.
