Loving Memories- Your gentle face and patient smile, with sadness we recall, you had a kindly word for each, and died beloved by all; The voice is mute and stilled the heart, that loved us well and true, ah, bitter was the trial to part from one so good as you; You are not forgotten loved one, Nor will you ever be, As long as life and memory last, We will remember thee; We miss you now, our hearts are sore, As time goes by we miss you more, Your loving smile, your gentle face, No one can fill your vacant place.
