It means a lot at times like this
To lovingly recall
The many thoughtful things you're done
And thank you for them all
You filled our hearts with happiness
Each moment that we shared
Each day was more wonderful
Just knowing that you cared
Each sweet and thoughful thing you did
Just made us love you more
Just made you even dearer
And still nearer than before.
