With the gift of life
Comes the treasure of knowing
That there are many who love you dearly.
The memories you’ve made with us will last forever.
The tenderness you’ve shared with us will last forever.
The most wonderful gift you could ever give is the special part of you that now lies in each of us.
And the truth your love has taught us can only be strengthened by the gift of time…..
For where roots grow deep, memories grow forever.
