“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” II Timothy 4:7-8

A precious one from us is gone
A voice we loved is stilled
A place is vacant in our house
That never can be filled.
He will not be forgotten
Though on earth he is no more
But in memory he is with us
As he always was before.
