Although words seem to say so little,
I hope they help in some small way
to ease the sense of loss
that you’re experiencing today.
Hold fast to your memories,
to all of the cherished moments
of the past….
They all add up to a treasure
of fond yesterdays
and keep the one you loved
close to your heart,
today and forevermore.

My deepest Sympathy JP ;-(
