Thirteen years have passed
in what seems like thirteen seconds.
The time gone by softens at times
the searing pain of your loss,
but it has not diminished the heartache
we feel each day.
We are grateful for the example
you set for us to live on,
nurtured by the grace of your life well lived
and inspired by the
breadth of your imagination,
the force of your courage
and the depth of your love for us
and we in turn for you.
Stay close to us . . . we love you eternally
Jessie and Wayne, David Anthony, Abby,
your Mum and Dad
Tom and Christopher,
As we celebrate Thanksgiving
this month, we give thanks
for having you in our lives,
for the life lessons you taught us,
for the love we continue to share,
and for the everlasting memories.
You are forever with us!
Love, Mom, Dad, Dave,
Kelly, Ian & your new nephew, Tom
