Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

My dear Kevin, David and Holly,
You and all your families are in my thoughts and prayers as you carry on with very heavy hearts. Both your Mom and Dad had such tremendous love and admiration for each one of you. You were the "apple of their eye"! I wish peace to your hearts and minds as you begin the transition to a new relationship with both your parents. They will always be near you but in a new and different dimension. God bless all of you. Love, Aunt Madeleine
