If tears could build a stairway and memories were a lane
We would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good-bye
You were gone before we knew it and only god knows why.
Since you’ll never be forgotten we pledge to you today
A cherished place within our hearts is where you’ll always stay.
There will be no formal service as per request of the family. A small gathering will be set at a later date and is left to be announced. In lieu of flowers the family asks that a donation be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
