Forever In Our Hearts by Derrick Reeves

You brought a lot of joy to our hearts,
You touched our lives so dearly with your radiant smile
You’ve been a long-time friend
And a dear loved one to many others.
Many will agree, you were in many ways
A beautiful person. Even though we weep and mourn your departure,
Your love will always be felt within us; because memories are forever in our minds in our souls and forever in our hearts.

Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
We have you in our heart.
