It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone
Part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
A million times we’ve thought of you
A million times we’ve cried
If loving could have saved you
You would have never died
Forgive us Lord, we’ll always weep
For all our loved ones we loved but could not keep.
This is in memory of all our loved ones who have left us
for their heavenly home:
Grandpa (dada), Grandma (nana), Uncle Gerard (we never
had the opportunity to know you), Dad, Mom, Fabian,
Uncle Sunno, Aunty Florence, Uncle Christopher, Uncle Tony,
Aunty Veronica, Aunty Dorothy, Percy Mercer (brother-in-law),
Bobby Mercer (brother-in-law), Mary Mercer (mother-in-law),
David Mercer (father-in-law), David Barook, Uncle Osmer,
Aunty Berry and all those whom I couldn’t list here

In loving memory of Dad

Dad…so many images come to mind
whenever I speak your name;
It seems without you in my life
things have never been the same.

What happened to those lazy days
when I was just a child;
When my life was consumed in you
in your love, and in your smile.

What happened to all those times
when I always looked to you;
No matter what happened in my life
you could make my gray skies blue.

Dad, some days I hear your voice
and turn to see your face;
Yet in my turning…it seems
the sound has been erased.

Dad, who will I turn to for answers
when life does not make sense;
Who will be there to hold me close
when the pieces just don’t fit.

Oh, Dad, if I could turn back time
and once more hear your voice;
I’d tell you that out of all the dads
you would still be my choice.

Please always know I love you
and no one can take your place;
Years may come and go
but your memory will never be erased.

Today, Jesus, as You are listening
in your home above;
Would you go and find my dad
and give him all my love.

A gentle wind blew cross the land
Reaching out to take a hand
For on the winds the angels came
Calling out a mother’s name.

Left behind, the children’s tears
Loving memories of the years
Of joy and love, a life well spent
And now to God a mother’s sent.

On angel’s wings, a heavenly flight
The journey home, towards the light
To those who weep, a life is gone
But in God’s love, ’tis but the dawn.

The years we’ve shared have been full of joy.
The memories we’ve made will go on and on.
I haven’t stopped crying since you went away,
And I’ve asked God time and time why couldn’t you stay.
You lit up my life, my hopes, and my dreams.
You’ve opened my eyes to see what it all means.
So now that you’re gone how can I forget;
Because you were the greatest out of all I have met.

Crying my heart out over you

Oh somewhere the music’s playing soft and low
And a stranger holds the one that I love so
I was blind I could not see that you meant the world to me
But like a fool I stood and watched you go

Now I’m crying my heart out over you
Those blue eyes now they smile at someome new
Ever since you went away I die a little more each day
While I’m crying my heart out over you

Each night I climb the stairs up to my room
It seems I hear you whisper in the gloom
I miss your picture on the wall and your footsteps in the hall
While I’m crying my heart out over you
