All the world would be like heaven, if I could have you back again! The happy hours we once enjoyed, How sweet their memory still. But death has left a vacant place, This world can never fill. God gave me strength to bear it, and courage to fight the blow; What it has meant to lose you, God alone will ever know! Time goes by without you here, but you're never far away. I keep your love and memories within me, each and every day. Together Forever! Eleanor and family
