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
