  1. Although you’re gone,you will never leave. Your memory lives on through your family. A sweet song you can sing, as you start your new begining. Because of the love that you shared, There won’t be a tear that is spared. We have tears of joy, but also of sorrow, because we won’t see you tomorrow. But we know you’ll be there, and no longer sitting in your chair. You’ll be dancing with your husband, And that is the happiest end.

  2. by chelsea,10 Gone You were here one day, healthy and bright, then came that perticular night. You were breathing hard, so was I. Every now and then i would start to cry. You left me as I weep, this emotion so deep. I love you so much and now you’re gone. It will never be the same. Good-bye.

  3. Grandma, I will always remember the cool crafts you used to make and send to me in Vermont. I loved receiving those homemade gifts from you. I also remember that you are the one who taught me to crochet, which is a hobby that I still enjoy and always will, remembering you with each stitch…I love you so very much Grandma and I will miss you with all of my heart. You will live on in my memories and I look foward to the day I see you again in paradise!
