The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that 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 peaceful 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 as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Dear Vivian and family,

I was deeply saddened when Owen told me of your loss, last Saturday at work.
Please know that I have you in my prayers. Growing up on Guelph Street was great fun and it was an honour to get to know Reid over the last 20 years at the Pharmacy. Call me anytime for coffee and or a chat.

Sincerely yours,

Sandra, Barry, Abigail and Jacob
