May you always walk in sunshine and God’s love around you flow. For the happiness you gave us, no one will ever know. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. A part of us went with you the day God called you home. A million times we’ve needed you, a million times we’ve cried. If love could only have saved you, you never would have died.
