 Broken Chain, by Ron Tranmer

We little knew that day
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 home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
