I’m thinking of you today, but that is nothing new.  I thought about you yesterday and the days before that too.  I think of you in silence and often speak your name.  Now all I have are memories and your picture in a frame.  Your memory is a keepsake from which I’ll never part.  God now has you in his arms but you’ll always be in my heart.
