“Those we LOVE don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.”
Until We Meet Again
We think about you always,
We talk about you still,
You have never been forgotten,
And you never will.
We hold you close within our hearts & there you will remain
To walk & guide us through our lives,
Until We Meet Again.
”What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose; all that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”
