The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Each day you strived to live,
Your body too weak to be.
Your love will live forever,
Since your heart has set you free.

Now you walk so bravely,
You feel the pain no more.
Angel's have come to guide you
And bring you to heaven's door.


Memories we hold so dearly,
You're smile, warmed our hearts
And through our lives you live,
You've touched so many parts.


Hard days may be before us,
It's all part of the plan.
Why you left so soon,
We may never understand.

Our lives have changed forever,
Since the day you passed away.
In Heaven you'll be waiting,
To meet us some day.

We love you and you will be with us always!
