If tears could build a stairway
And memories a lane,
We would walk right up to heaven
To bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears will flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know.
When we are sad or lonely,
And everything goes wrong,
We seem to hear you whisper,
“Cheer up and carry on!”
Each time we look at your pictures
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry I’m only sleeping,
We’ll meet again someday.”Processional ...................................................... Ministers, Pallbearers, Family and Friends

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art
with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of
mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy
shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will
dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Amen
