    Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard but always near. Still loved, Still Missed and very dear. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Loves leaves a memory no one can steal. May you find comfort In God during this difficult time. Praying for all of you today and the days ahead. Love you All.
