"The Broken Chain"..... We knew little that morning. God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you hm. You left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we can not see you, You're always by our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.. WE LOVE YOU MAMA, BILLY, WALTER(ESTELLA), ROBERT, CHRIS, PRISCILLA
