The Broken Chain
Jackie, little did we know that God was going to soon call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left peaceful memories, your precious love is still our guide; and although we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us home, one by one, the chain will link again!
