Your Music Plays On!
It's hard to believe a year has gone by since you were received by our Lord. Your absence has left a huge hole in our hearts and loneliness
in our home. Loving you is a precious honor and thanks be to God that love transcends the grave! You taught us no matter what life brings, always depend upon the Lord. Now that you're not here, that lesson has proven true because God has "carried us". Therefore, we will not grieve like those who have no hope, because one day as God has promised,
we'll be together again! We'll hear your beautiful music and we'll sing throughout eternity. Play on Maestro!
Forever loving you,
Deborah, Chelsey, Rob, Ty,
