In Loving Memory...

This month has brought a lot of heartache to my family - a week before Christmas my grandpa passed away. In his honor, I dedicate this post and would like to share a lovely poem my grandma selected for his service:

The Broken Chain by Ron Tranmer

We little knew the day that,
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
but in God we put our trust,
In times as difficult as this,
faith is such a must.

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.
