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.
