OUR BROKEN CHAIN
Little did we know that day, GOD was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in deary, we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you. You did not go alone, for a part of us went with you, the day GOD call you home. You left us memories, your love is still our guide. And although we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken once again, and nothing seems the same, but GOD call us one by one. The chain will link once again.
