A thousand times we needed you, A thousand times we cried.
If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died.
A heart of gold stopped beating Two twinkling eyes closed to rest
God broke our hearts to prove He only took the best.
Never a day goes by that you’re not in our hearts and thoughts.
Lovingly missed by your husband Marvin, Julie, Vickie, Sharon, Joe, and their families.
