I know a big limb has fallen from our family tree
Hear my voice when I say to you, “Grieve not for me”
Remember all the good times, the laughter and the songs
And the life I lived while I was strong
Continue my heritage for I am counting on you
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through
My mind is at ease now and my soul is at rest
Remembering all, how truly I was blessed
Continue our traditions, no matter how small
Go on with your life, don’t worry about the falls
I love and miss you all dearly, so keep up your chins
Until the day comes, when we are finally together again
