Words seem so feeble

In moments like these

Life is so precious

And death such a thief 

The depths of your pain 

I cannot comprehend  

But I’ll stand alongside you 

In the darkness my friend  

Love is a bond 

That death cannot part 

Gone from your arms 

But still held in your heart

Logan Memorial Chapel, 215 N. Fourth Avenue, Logan, Iowa, 51546.
