Just a prayer from the family who loved you,
Just a memory fond and true,
In our hearts you will stay forever,
Because we thought the world of you.

We cannot bring the old days back
When we were all together,
But fond and loving thoughts of you
Will be with us forever.

You cared for us when we were small,
Watched over us as we grew tall;
You shared our joys, you dried our tears,
Thank you Daddy for those precious years.

The happy hours we once enjoyed
How sweet their memory still,
But death has left a vacant place
This world can never fill.

Your life was one of kindly deeds,
A helping hand for other’s needs;
To a beautiful life came a happy end:
You died as you lived – everyone’s friend.
