Heard your voice today 

We heard your voice in the wind today, and we turned to see your 
face. We held you close in our hearts today, and it made us feel 
complete. You may have died, but you are not gone you will 
forever be a part of us. 

As long as the sun shines, 
the wind blows, 

and the rain falls 

You will forever live on the inside of us forever, 
for that is all our heart knows. 

Love your nieces and nephews
