WE REMEMBER:




There is a bridge of memory,

from earth to heaven above.

It keeps you always near us,

It's called the bridge of Love.


It broke our hearts to lose you,

but you did not go alone,

For part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.



Many thanks to Marian O'Connor for her

beautiful calligraphy.
