For you Sherry,
A million times we’ll think of you, A million times we’ll cry.
If love could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still.
And in our hearts you hold a place, that no one else can fill.
It breaks our hearts to lose you, but you do not go alone,
For all of us with you go today. God calls you home.
We love you so much.
