You were the pride of our hearts


”It’s so difficult to let you go
Though death’s left us no other choice
We’re mourning the loss of never seeing you again
Of never hearing your precious voice
It seems that in life there are certain times
Which are more than “simply unfair”

When our hearts search out for better answers
But cannot seem to find them there
And such is the case at your passing
Contemplating the briefness of your life
All the great things that you still would have done
If you’d been granted a little more time

It isn’t difficult to envision the possibilities
For look at what you’d already done
The difference you’d made in so many lives
In all that you had become
Perhaps you were simply too good for this life
So God called you back to Heaven

That your life needed no further testament
Than the goodness you’d already given
But regardless of the reason
For why you had to depart
We will miss you every single day of our lives
For you were the pride of our hearts!

Thank you for being our example (Insert Name Here).
Inspiring us through your courage and drive
We’ll cherish all the precious memories
You lovingly created in our lives
For truly, your life reflected
A wisdom that few, so young, can see…”
