PSALMS 23:16
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for this name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort be. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest by head with oil, my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Tears from Our Eyes
As tears roll down our faces,
We know you're in a better place.
We close our eyes to see your face,
suddenly we feel a warm embrace.
With a smile so wide,
it brings tears to our eyes.
We try so hard not to cry;
all of our pain we cannot hide.
You always knew just what to say
to anyone of us having a bad day.
We don't know if we will ever understand,
but it must be part of God's plan.
As we look up toward the blue sky,
we imagine you spreading your wings to fly.
Be sure to give K.C., Kevin, Kimmie, Kenvul, Kenneth, Keefe, Keton, and Jonathan a sign
so we know you are in Heaven
and everything is fine.
Tell everyone there we send our love
to all of the angels up above.
As the tears roll down our face,
we know you are in a better place.
